On Sunday, May 17th, I competed in Chattanooga 70.3. Here’s a quick recap of my race in pictures. Enjoy!
The Chattanooga 70.3 expo and transition were located in Ross’s Landing Park. The area is full of attractions and great restaurants, all along the waterfront. I highly recommend visiting!
Race morning! I slipped into my BlueSeventy swim skin, loosened up, put on some sunscreen and waited as patiently as possible…
Luckily, I didn’t have to wait as long as these folks. The line to get in the water seemed endless. I think it took fifty minutes to get everyone in. A successful rolling start!
One last pic and down the ramp…
In the drink! This is the start of a beautiful swim in the Tennessee river.
We passed under two bridges and made a left to get to Ross’s Landing.
Not much current to speak of… (Swim split: 28 minutes and change)
Onto the bike with my trusty Argon 18, Cobb Saddle, ENVE Composites and Infinit Nutrition. The PERFECT set up! (Bike split: 2:33)
Out of T2 and onto the run… My foot was bothering me a little. Took me awhile to get into a groove.
But the second loop felt much much better! (Run split: 1:31)
In the end I finished with a time of 4:38. Good enough for 8th overall!
Many thanks to my awesome homestay, Brandon O’Rear, who also competed in Chattanooga 70.3 and kicked some serious butt! He, his wife, Sarah, and daughter, Isla, were the PERFECT hosts.
None of this would be possible without my INCREDIBLE sponsors, Maverick Multisport, Argon 18, ENVE Composites, Cobb Cycling, Blueseventy, Sugoi, Jaybird, Catlike Helmets, VO2 Multisport, Rotor Bike Components, Occupational Kinetics, Swiftwick Socks, Infinit Nutrition, BSX Insight, and Primal Sport Mud. Thank you!!! I’m looking forward to the next one!
