Waterfront Results

Well, the official results finally came out yesterday. I didn't get a penalty, nor did I get disqualified. Whew! Here they are:

I placed 16th out of 55 in the 30-34 AG, with a 2:46:34. Last year I did a 2:40 and placed that shows you how much harder this course was this year. Everyone's times were much slower. I thought my time was awful when I finished, but I noticed that I finished ahead of a few people who are normally faster than I am, so maybe it wasn't that bad. I do know that I could have had a better run if I had handled my nutrition better and had not started out so fast. And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I can swim faster than I did if I am more focused. Regardless, I think that I actually qualified for the USAT National AG Championships in Portland, Oregan next June. If I read the qualification rules correctly, it said that the top 33% of each age group qualifies. So that's pretty cool. Although I don't know if I'll make it all the way to Portland, OR during baseball season next year. But it's still pretty cool, I guess.
