|The Start. I am in the purple cap. This was the first time I got a different colored cap so they could "identify" me.|
|2013 is a wrap.|
On that note, here is the Branson run down:
-the swim was stressful as the water was warm and the air was cold. Fog collected on the water and I did not know where I was going which caused me to let off the gas a bit.
-the bike was FREEZING for me and I rode like crap the first 20 miles. Then, as the temperature went up, so did my watts. The bike course was up and down the whole way but one of my favorite courses EVER. We got to ride on a closed 4 lane highway. It was like a dream. No cars. Amazing and challenging.
|The Bike Course. We had BOTH sides of the highway. No cars.|
|We ran through the Promenade (outdoor mall) and into the surrounding neighborhoods. Since we had a lot of hills on the bike we got a flat run to finish out the day.|
|The Branson airport. Two gates. Southwest and Frontier fly there.|
And there you have it. 2013 is done. I need to make a commitment to write again on this blog even though I won't race again until March/April 2014. I often wonder what to write about. Is anyone really reading? Perhaps I need to write more to make people interested in what I have to say. If you are reading and have anything you want to hear about leave a comment! I always like good ideas and I want to make my reading audience happy. Thanks for following along this year, Happy Holidays!
