preliminary race reportWe didn't get home until 8 pm so I'm not going to be able to write a full race report tonight. But the quick version is that it couldn't have gone more smoothly--everything I learned from the race in Anderson in August worked. I hurt less than the August race and went faster.
281 52 PAM MACK CLEMSON SC
Swim 1.2 miles: 00:56:40
Bike 56 miles: 03:45:55 (14.9 mph)
Run 13.1 miles: 03:24:09 (15.34 pace)
Total: 08:15:23 place 102 out of 107 women. I was the last female finisher but there was a man behind me with a time of 8:32. My bike and run were at a faster pace than the race in August that was less than 3/4 the distances (38K bike and 15K run) but hillier. My swim was even slightly faster, and this time not in a flat calm. I may even have been third in my age group--there were five registered but I only see two ahead of me.
