|Posing With Sugarloaf Bluff Pre Race|
As far as my race goes, I was definitely more nervous than I normally am. The combination of healing from injury, hoping my foot would tolerate the race, and the minimal training I had done made for a few butterflies! However, considering all those factors I had a satisfying race and FINISHED! A goal I had started to take for granted pre-injury.
Swim: 9:27 (27 seconds faster than last year)
Bike: 38:01 (41 seconds slower than last year)
Run: 32:07 (6 mins and 13 seconds slower than last year)
Finish Time: 1:23:25
I am pretty excited that my swim and bike times were very similar to last years race even with my lack of training! I also expected my run time to be significantly slower due to injury, so that was not a surprise. However, I still placed 10th out of 23 people in my age group. And did I mention it felt great to be out competing again?

|Some serious hardware!|
On a side note, the finisher medal we received last year had a misprint and declared the race "Battle For The Buff" (which I thought was hilarious)! However, this year they got it right with awesome hardware declaring the race "Battle For The Bluff"!
If you have the opportunity check this race out! You won't be dissapointed.
