IT WAS HOT!!! I mean the kind of hot that made me question whether I would finish! But I did and did PR of 6:47. I did the bike in 3:05 which is fast for me. I had to walk part of the run because the temp was 97 degrees here today (the record is 99). Did I mention it was HOT?? I think I got 6th in my age group but official results not up yet:
Now the bad news:
Hartley pulled a calf muscle on the run and had to stop. He was doing great up until mile 2 on the run and something "snapped" and he couldn't run or walk the rest. He is OK-still hobbling but able to walk now..He is bummed and I am too cause he does so well in the elements-better than I-so he would have rocked the run..
More later-it was by far the hottest race i have ever done and one of the hardest!
