Not much time to discuss the weekend happenings. Interbike just ended and the internet is flooded with pics, speculations and other time wasting materials.
I was sweating the run. 5 miles through sandy trail was not my idea of a walk in the park. I warmed up well using my wife's advice (way more run race experience) and felt good through the singletrack and hills. I came into the transition having run 8 min. miles (faster than the PCOC strut) and ready to get on the bike.
I pushed the tall gears but didn't have the legs. Either I wasted them on the run or from all the miles I have been logging in preparation for the Ice Man. I pulled back a dozen or so racers but the last group hung out in front of in slow motion but I just could not pull them in.
I am still waiting for race results to be posted. Holly counted me in at about 35th out of 100 plus. A great day for racing and an awesome low key event. I will be back next year.
Now it is time to put the resume together and start thinking about Ice Ice Baby.
