Hey. Well the 70.3M World Championships are over and now the off-season has truly started. I will do a more detailed race report when I get home but quickly; I came 339 out of 1500 racers and did a 4hrs 30mins 27secs time, not quite under the 4hrs 30mins that I was trying to break but close....the race went pretty well, the run was very tough particularly through miles 2-5 when I had some stomach issues (hence the negative split over the two halves of the 13.1m run course). I am pleased with the overall result though and it gives me a great race on which to build for next season.
Other news is that I am seriously considering Ironman UK on Sept 7th 2008....just trying to work out the logistics at the moment.
Anyway I back off to the beach and a beer........
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
