|All dressed up and ready to go!|
|Kevin Casey and Jack|
The weather was warm and clear at the start, with quite a big field (347!) participating.
Kevin was in the 3rd wave and I was in the 5th. Lake Minneola was flat and warm and we both exited the water together. I lost sight of him after that and began the hilly bicycle portion. The hills did not disapoint as I crawled up some and hit 38mph on the biggest going down. The run leg through town has some nice hills too and I kept feeling better and the last mile felt like I was flying. I never saw anyone else in my age group so I was surprised to find that I placed 1st out of 7, my 21st win, with a time of 1:19:11.
I wore my Central Florida Tri Club kit so I posed for pictures with the other members who placed, Kelly, Karen, and Luis.
