err, Aquathlon Race Report
Yikes! WSMR was the site of some really strong
Saturday morning (4/15). I estimated them to be to about a steady 25 mph with
gusts around 50! It made the Mt. Taylor bike descent look easy.
Signs were getting blown around, people were being
sand-blasted, and bike racks (with $10,000 + in bikes on them) were
being knocked over. After a brief discussion, the organizers canceled
the bike leg and extended the run leg. For what it's worth, the run
course was later measured in our truck to be 4.25 miles, or just under
a 7k. The swim stayed 400m long.
To give you an idea of how strong the winds winds were, let me tell you
that my feet were being knocked into each other, drafting packs formed,
and, at one point, my cheeks & gums were flapping - and I
even talking! That said, Julie and I did pretty well as the bikeless
course worked to our advantage. I scanned in the full
results here (465k).
