Oceanside 70.3 was outstanding!!! Broke 5 hours and got 2nd place. It was the race I hoped it would be. My swim was right on 27, ride was 2:43 and run 1:43- the ride was where I was looking to make the biggest improvement and I did it successfully and was able to run as well.
Only regret....well was 2nd by 1:00....and that cost me the Kona slot. So, so close.
I am taking it in stride and using the race as a major confidence builder for IM Coeur d'Alene.
As for recovery....skiing in Mammoth with the kids!
