Sometimes numbers say it all...
A and I comparing run splits
number of finishers: 1423
number of females: 435
number of males: 987
average time: 05:49:19
bib number: 1642
overall place: 765 out of 1423
division place: 8 out of 22
gender place: 165 out of 435
swim: 35:26 (1:51/100m)
trans 1: 5:37
bike: 3:08:52 (Note that Tough Cookie and I had the same exact freaking bike split! Blog Twins I tell ya!) (17.79 mph)
trans 2: 2:50
run: 1:56:43 (8:54/mile)
I had my swim at 34:30 so that means it was about a 1 minute run to the first chip mat, then another 2 minute run (including a stop to strip the wetsuit and give kisses to my family) that they tacked onto my T1 time. Holy cow that's a lot of running before the bike ;) I think we all actually did 70.7 :) Note that that 3 minutes felt like 10! The carpet just before transition was heaven on your feet after all that sand and asphalt!
More on the race soon, I don't know how so many bloggers already got up recaps! Make sure to check out Habeela's, Tough Cookie's, The Clydes, Reddy's, Shelley's, Mike's, and Nancy Toby's sites for fun recaps on the weekend!
It was really cool seeing all these bloggers in addition to my CTC friends out on the course. It made the run very awesome.
And for the true number geeks run splits mile by mile:
11-10:11.20 (Huge Hill in this one, everyone I saw was walking)
13.1-0:43.22 (Seems I had a bit too much left in the tank this last mile)
