AM: Ran as part of a relay in the St. Anthony's Olympic triathlon. Our swimmer exited the pool in 11th overall for the relays and our biker was 6th on the bike but with positioning set me up for 4th entering the run with 5:00, 4:40, and 2:30 behind 1-3 respectively so I had my work cut out for me. I did not get the job done and did not pass a single one. Although my overall time (35:50) was faster than their three, I did not do enough to catch up, finishing 4:12, 1:58, and 1:37 back respectively. I had done the math at the halfway point and had just too much ground to make up (4:40, 4:00, and 2:20) so I did kind of pack it in a bit. I still ran semi-hard, but figured I didn't have much of a shot.
Splits- 18:13, 17:37 (also not included would be the +19 seconds for the time through the transition area from the mat).
I did get to see a bunch of friends along the way who were volunteering or participating! A lot of people mentioned my form looked good, so that was a nice surprise despite not being able to catch anyone in my division.
