A couple of quick points about the HIM
- the swim was....a swim. Yes they could've used a few more buoys, but the water was warm and saltless, there was next to no chop, and the only fish I saw were bluegills....which I can't imagine bite very hard at all.
- the bike course had some pretty crappy surface, but I expected that from having ridden the course a couple of times in training.
- the run course was on fire roads and single track...again, expected.
- it was hot, and yes, that too was expected.
About race reviews....I had a whole write up in my head, a rant mostly, about race reviews and the things people complain about in them. I mean...this *is* my blog, right? I can rant about what ever I want. But I realized I'm entitled to my opinion and so are those other people. So, I'm censoring myself with the ranting. Yes, I know....a sign of maturity or something.....who'd have thought.
Next week we start a more 'run focused' training in prep for the Big Sur half marathon in November. And I now see a long run on my schedule for the weekend we're on the big island. I hope I don't have traumatic flashbacks. Then again, I should be fine as long as I'm not running in the dark.
