Rev 3 Knoxville, Memphis in May, and Cap Tex Tri

Pole position at Memphis in May Triathlon
Overall, I'm seeing improvements and racing myself back into shape. I finished 6th today losing a sprint finish to Matt Reed.  The good news is I caught him on the run.  In Memphis, I finished 4th and at Rev3 Knoxville I managed 7th.

 Memphis in May went a little better I rode well and ran okay. I averaged 28.7mph on the bike, which is pancake flat.  The run was long, so it's hard to compare my time to other races.  But, I ran okay relative to the competition.  The weather probably help us out a bit.  It rained most of the bike, but the lightening stopped just long enough for us to get out to the water.  At the this race the pro started last, so most of the age groupers were done when we started.  If it hadn't race and stayed cloudy it would've been super hot (90s and humid).

At Rev3 I had a better swim - not great but better.  Overall, I'll take the improvement in fitness and results.
