Throwing on my running shoes is always my favorite part of the triathlon. I'm in familiar and comfortable territory and running is what I do best. The temperature was creeping up on me but I kept dumping water on me to stay cool. I was hoping to be able to run sub-9 minute miles, something I haven't done previously.
As I reached the last mile and I looked down at my watch, I. got. emotional.
Boulder Peak 2010 ~ 8 Minute PR!!!!
Bike 1:23:49 (18.6mph)
Run 52:30 (8:28 pace)
Boulder Peak 2009 ~Results for comparison
Bike 1:24:01 (18.6mph)
Run 56:32 (9:08 pace)
I still felt like there was work to be done so I headed to the pool. I need to get faster STILL on the swim. 2900 meters later, I was ready for some rest and celebrating... What a great day today was!
