Tempe International Triathlon - May 19, 2013



Yesterday I competed in the Tempe International Triathlon. I am trying to qualify for the USAT Nationals in Milwaukee and this was my second of three races where I can qualify.

This race attracts a lot of very competitive older athletes so I knew it would be a longshot and it was. I needed to finish first in my age group to qualify and this year there were three others that were faster than me.

I had a very good swim segment and I averaged almost 20 mph on the bike, but on the run I just didn’t have the energy or guts or whatever it took to push through the heat and I was well off my pace. 

But I still managed to improve on my previous best time here by nearly two minutes so I’m not discouraged. I think I have a good chance at qualifying at my next race in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.  In that race I just have to finish in the top 5. 

Here are results:
