Jax sprint #3

I’m pretty sure that I’ve done at least one sprint tri per year since 1997…

Last weekend was my token sprint for 2011… and I might not have done one at all… but…  Judi won an entry and I tagged along.

¼ mile swim – 16 mile bike – 3 mile run

Since it was “just a sprint” we decided to make things a bit more interesting and have our kids drop us off at the race in Fernandina Beach ~40 miles away so that we could bike home…

I decided to geek out a bit equipment wise too…  aero helmet and disc wheel

Swim (9:04) - I must be improving because I swam with the guys in my wave the whole time

Bike (38:16) – I really like the 25.1 mph average on the website but…  I think the course is short…  had a good ride tho…  definitely touched 30mph with a tailwind on the way back in.

Run (22:36) – gotta get a bit faster here…  this is where I suffered physically, mentally, and against my competition.  I think I need to be able to turn 7s to be near the top in my AG.

All in all a fun well directed race…  good venue…

And a stupidcrazyfreakinhot ride home

On the Mayport Ferry Headed home
