Elkhart Lake Triathlon Results - June 8, 2013



Woody's maxim proved true for my goal of qualifying for USAT Nationals.  This was my third attempt and all I had to do was finish 5th in my age group.  It turned out there were only 7 competitors in the 60-64 age cohort and one of them dropped out during the bike segment, so I just had to finish ahead of someone. Which I did.  I finished 5th, a couple minutes ahead of Sam Hill, who finished sixth. I could probably find another pithy maxim referencing Sam Hill.

It was a perfect day for a race - partly cloudy, cool and no wind. The water, while a little coolish at 63 degrees was like a mirror and the bike course, while not exactly flat, had mostly rolling hills and again no wind.  The best part of the race though was that the final two miles of the run were downhill.

I had a good race. The bike course was 2.4 miles longer than I anticipated so my actual time is hard to compare, but I averaged 19.4 mph, which was close to my goal of 19.7 mph.

It was a very well organized race in a spectator-friendly venue. I would race here again.

Here are my race results this year:
