My first 70.3 was truly a magical experience, don’t get me wrong it was difficult but really cool.

The swim was started off well but after about 5 minutes of swimming I realized that I did not put anti-fog drops in to my goggles, you can imagine what I was thinking until bam just like in the old batman movies I see stars. I got smacked in the nose and kicked in the head, for good measure. I did not care about goggles at that point. After cleaning up by bloody nose and un-fogging my goggles of I go to complete the swim.

The bike, everything was going well until mile 30. The hill was steep and I was not prepared for it. I was crawling, barley moving 4mph, halfway through I stopped and walked up the hill, disgraceful (I know). I knew at that point I was toast and it showed the rest of the bike leg. The additional hills hit me hard, I felt like I was climbing the mountain pass in France that Lance did.

I was exhausted as I rolled into T2 and took me almost six minutes to put on my compression socks and shoes. I almost stopped running after reaching the first mile marker but something kept me moving. The run was slow and painful, not even close to where I wanted to be.

The finish was kind of cool, I did it, RunFatboyRun. Smile

Lessons learned: to many to list.

Must use bodyglide and sunblock 50 everywhere, love this stuff “Hawaiian Island Creations 2X Sunblock, SPF 50 Lotion”.
I forgot to bodyglide my neck and I have this irritation from the wetsuit, looks like someone tried to hang me.

Day before the race Jacob and I headed out to the expo. I was able to meet some pros and get some pictures and talk to them for a bit. They are almost like you and I except they race extremely fast.

Samantha McGlone and Michellie Jones where just amazing and funny. I congratulated Mirinda Carfrae on her win and she actually asked me how I fared and what I found most challenging. I spoke to her and Richie Cunningham for almost five minutes. Magical experience!

BIG Shout out to Jacob 06:24:16, first 70.3… not bad at all.

Well that all folks. Thank you. GO JERSEY SHORE!

The Great Atlantic Ocean Triathlon – Sunday September 13, 2009 – Sprint Distance

Filed under: Triathlon — runfatboyrrun @ 1:48 am

Well, it’s going to take a little time for me to get this right.

The Great Atlantic Ocean Triathlon http://www.jsmultisport.com/race_seaside_heights_091309.shtml

Dangerous riptides and 2 ft sand drifts at Seaside Park’s south end resulted in the following distance modification of The Great Atlantic: Swim .40 mile, bike 14.2 miles, run 3.1 mile.

What a day..

 I got to the site parked and setup without any issues. I was feeling ready and then i looked at the waves. The problem started when i realized that i did not take my GU before the swim and i did not go to the bathroom either, i had an 2 hours worth of liquid and no energy to burn. I had 2 slices toast for breakfast at 4am and the start was at 6:45am. I must have burned all my energy in the swim, which by the way sucked and i still did not go to the bathroom. The T1 area was in the parking lot area and it was a nice run from the beach. On the bike, I’m feeling sluggish so i say to my self you idiot you forgot your nutrition. i take our my GU and somehow i clip the gps and it falls off. It was windy but the GU did not kick to-wards the second lap. I rolled in to t2 and i knew that if i did not use the bathroom i would pee in my pants. Coming out of t2 i did not see one Port potty until mile 1.4 and then i felt great the run was slow no excuse for that. so the moral to this story is go to the bathroom before the swim and take your nutrition …  DO NOT OVER HIDRATE

 

My mom came out to support me awesome… love you mom.
