Salty Dog Win and Course Record
Race day was another typical warm and windy Kansas day. This was the first salty dog I had done and had been looking forward to it since the cancellation of last years event due to weather. My swim continues to show signs of improvement and after making my way through some slower swimmers I was out of the 400 long course pool swim in 5.57. With a quick T1 I was first out on the bike course and began rolling through the 5 x 2 mile laps (26.12). I finished the day off with a 17.23 5k. Total time for my race was 51.22, good enough for a course record by a couple of minutes. Thanks to all the friends and family that showed up to support me.
