1 x South Carolina Half
1 x Half IM Run Split P.B.
It was a fun race this weekend, it was my third weekend in a row with a 1/2 IM race, and I been feeling stronger every race. Two weeks ago I race Savageman and it’s a great race, tough course, but I was pretty weak. Last week I stayed here in Clermont and raced the Florida Challenge Half, again on a really tough course, in some heat, and had a better race there than the week before and was able to win. This week was South Carolina Half IM, and I was able to win again. I forgot my wetsuit, and had to borrow one last minute. On the bike it was burning in my legs from the start, but it was good, b/c when you don’t taper and been racing alot, there is no shock or panic when it starts to hurt, it’s a normal feeling. I came off the bike in second and the rolling hills of the run were really fun to run over, I could let loose on the downhills, and work on the uphills. It was the best feeling I have had running in a race in over a year, and was able to run a 1:16:01 which is my fastest run split by 2 minutes.
Thanks to all the races the last three weeks.
