|Post race FUN with friends|
To be clear...2nd isn't bad, I'm not ungrateful for the good things, but I expect the BEST from myself and this is the first time in a long time that I felt I made easily avoidable mistakes and for that, I'm disappointed in myself. As I voiced my disappointment on Tuesday to a friend, I was asked "did you have a good time?". The answer is YES, I did. I got to race with friends, and then go out in wine country, and have a great meal with friends. And even in disappointment comes good learnings, so that is a good time too!
Positive take away's from the race:
I was faster than LY, yeah! Only a minute, but hey, faster is faster, right?!!

I was destroyed on Monday...almost like I'd done a full IM...so I was happy with that knowing that that feeling only comes when we push hard.
Things I need to continue to work on:

So now we move it right along and as Mark said to me on Sunday when I asked what the gap was to 3rd..."we're not even looking at that, we are only looking at what's ahead" (FYI, I totally didn't appreciate this at the time...it's a much better metaphor than it is in real time). It's time to look ahead to Ohio 70.3 and the final push to Kona!
Hope your training is KICKING BOOTY and thanks for following along!
