Looking back as we exited the swim, Devon, Kevin, and Patrick were right behind Thad and I. I planned on trying to blow-up my legs on the bike in preparation for Life Time Fitness Triathlon this coming Saturday. This year I managed 27.6 mph versus 27.1 mph in 2009 and 26.4 mph in 2008. I ran within seconds of my previous times, so Life Time should go alright.
In the men's race, Devon tried to hold off Patrick on the run, but Patrick managed to pass him late in the run. Kevin had hoped to beat both of them, but he was involved in a crash right before transition. He finished ,but the crash took him out of the podium race. From what I saw, Cathy built up a cushion on the bike and was able to run uncontested to the finish. Jenny Shaughnessy held on to 2nd.
