Race Results

The official results were posted today. I was 2nd in my age group and 13th out of all females in the race.

Swim: 11:25.40 (17th overall out of 345 - male and female! 1:31 pace per 100 yards)

Transition 1 (changing from swim to bike): 1:44.30 (in looking at everyone else's time that seems to be pretty quick)

Bike: 47:57.70 (clearly my weakest link - 15.6 mph)

Transition 2 (changing from bike to run - pretty quick too considering I had to change shoes): 1:26.90

Run: 23:40.1 (7:38 per mile pace - insane considering I normally run around 9:00 on my long runs - I must have really wanted to get this thing over with!)

Overall time: 1:26:14.4

In other news...
I received my number for the Peachtree today!

and... I think we have enough to submit a roster for the state championships for my mixed team. (assuming one of my teammaters doesn't sell his house in the meantime - we are considering pulling the sign out of his yard when he isn't home). The matches aren't until August so hopefully he won't get any interest until after the event!

and... I was supposed to play tennis tonight. My opponent wanted to reschedule because it was too hot. She must not be from around here.

Hey - just came across your blog and have read all the way back to the beginning! I am a very new runner (also named Karen and from Atlanta) and reading what you have accomplished is very motivating. I'm tired of running my boring neighborhood and noticed that you drive to various courses. Which ones do you like the best?

Hi - welcome :) I mostly run in Gwinnett. The Suwanee Greenway is a great short run. I also like Stone Mountain. It is a little more challenging with the hills but a peaceful run. I have heard Little Mulberry Park a little further north in Gwinnett is the best yet but I haven't made it out there yet. Good luck with the running! I haven't been doing it that long myself, it just takes a little commitment and you will be amazed at how much easier it gets. :)
