Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Sorry Chicken, not everyone is a winner. 

And the winner of the 70.3 giveaway is.....

Karen from Working It Out
Karen with the guess of 6:15:12.  She had to have known about the 10 – 20 mph wind gusts everyone faced on the bike ride.  Everyone’s cycling times were about 20 – 30 minutes slower than they expected due the winds.  If the winds were not a factor it would have been a very close call between everyone’s 6 hourish guesses. 
The high winds really affected my bike time.  She must have also know you could not put a transition mat due to the high amount of rain that delayed (and almost) canceled the swim.  My transition area had almost 1-2 inches of standing water.  I had to live out of my waterproof tri bag.
Karen, please contact me to claim your prize.
I will give a full race report later in the week.  My computer is dead at home so I have to fix it so I can blog more often.

  1. WOO HOO! Congratulations on a great race! I should have warned you in advance about the wind ;)

  2. Wow great job considering all the forces of nature were against you! I can't wait for the RR!


  3. Great job Kevin! Any plans for Ironman distance triathlon?

  4. Congrats on the race!! 20 mph winds on the bike....yuck! I didn't guess because I hadn't been following you long enough to know who well you would do. I can't even imagine 6 hours on the bike at this point my "tri career". Amazing!

  5. Woohoo!! Great job! Don't keep us hanging - we want the full report!!!

  6. 6 hrs on bike. LOL I think you need to adjust to 3 hours. I'm glad it wasn't 6 T & I would've waited forever.

  7. Congrats on finishing 70.3! Tris (but not triathletes so much) intimidate the heck out of me... Can't wait to read your report.

  8. Congrats buddy! Looks forward to reading your recap :)
