Patriot’s Half: Race Recap

On Saturday September 12th I raced the Patriot’s Half Iron distance triathlon in Williamsburg, VA. Here are a few highlights from the day…

Early morning

Early morning start… Transition opened at 5:30 and I couldn’t wait to get in!

In transition

Setting up my transition area… I had a pretty good spot, but more importantly I had the BEST gear. I stand by my Argon 18, ENVE Composite wheels, Cobb Cycling saddle, and ROTOR Q Rings.

Drinking Infinit

One last bottle of Infinit before the gun went off. (I like how my race number makes my 5Q tattoo look like 55(!) women to Kona.)

Speedsuit

On the beach admiring my Blueseventy PZ4TX speed suit.

Swim warm up

One last warm up swim complete… Headed to the start line. (I came out of the water in 2nd!)

Into t2

Getting flagged into T2 in first place in my Catlike helmet aboard my Argon 18 and ENVE Composite wheels. (I had the fastest bike split of the day!)

running

Starting the 13.1 mile run near the Jamestown Settlement in Williamsburg. (I carry a flask of Napalm by Infinit Nutrition during the run. It helped me to score the fastest run split of the day!)

finish

This is me, excited to be done, but without a lot of energy. (First female and 8th overall)

after the finish

I was a little tired…
