In Tim's words:
I raced the VTS Kinetic Sprint this morning, seemed to be more NoVA folks there than RVA.
As soon as we got out of the car the wind seemed to really pick up.
Probably my slowest 750m swim in some time, choppy water and a heaping mouthful of Lake Anna didn't help; but I got out of the water feeling good.
The bike is uphill right out of T1 and a slightly rolling course. I didn't have a bad bike split despite the winds, I ran a 60/90 combo and still really felt the cross winds. Run out is the same as the bike and downhill from about 2.6 on so I managed a 7:45 pace.
12th in my AG and while I really wanted to place a little higher I had to remind myself I did put in 111 on the bike Friday not something I would normally do before a race.
