It was a fine day for racing at Emporia last Sunday. Mild temps and light South wind made for a very pleasant day at the office. Although I was starter #3 in the time trial swim start, #1 and #2 were absent at start time so I got things going as first in. Since I was still overcoming some minor hamstring issues the goal was stay quick but controlled on the swim and bike and manage it in on the run. Everything went to plan and I was first home for the fourth year in a row. An added upgrade this year was chip timing and everything seemed to go off smooth in that department.
On to Columbia, MO this week. I believe there is a streaming finish line video so I'll post that link later this week if you're interested in being up at 7:50 on a Sunday morning to watch what is sure to be a great finish.
