Just a week after Duathlon Nationals we have Eagleman 70.3m and it's time to swing for the fences. So far this year I am batting .500 for "A" races and Eagleman is the last target race for the first half of the season.
It literally is a case of swing for the fences and see what comes up....Kona or bust! Last week's race gave me some much needed confidence heading into Sunday on a very similar course and what is likely to be similar weather conditions. The race strategy played out well and it will be the same plan for Sunday.
So what are the chances for Kona? Slim, as we probably only have 2 qualifying spots in the 35-39 age group and they are always hotly contested. But you have to be in it to win it. There are also Ironman 70.3 World Championship qualifying slots available so that could be a secondary goal.
To be really honest I don't expect a Kona slot but am racing to get one. If I have the perfect day then it could be within my grasp but the main goal is to try and hit my target's....I'll let you know after the race if I did :-)

Rode out to @riseupcoffee in Edgewater, awesome coffee as always but with limited capacities it was had while basking in the morning sun in the parking lot.
