USATCN Sprint Relay

Collegiate Nationals Sprint Relay
Tuscaloosa, Alabama
April 21st, 2012

250m Swim --- 6k BIKE --- 1.6k RUN

This was a last minute idea courtesy of Coast Guard stud, Ian King. He came up to me shortly after my upsetting Olympic race and asked if I would be interested in joining his team for the relay because one of their girls had to drop out. I reluctantly agreed because he said I had a bike to borrow and heck, I needed something to make up for the poor performance from earlier. The race was short and painful, but it was an absolute blast, though!!! Thanks for the suggestion, Ian!

Swim = 3:38, 11/152 OA, 5/76 F
Pace = 1:20 (includes run I believe)

T1= 1:13

Bike= 10:07, 95/152 OA, 4/76 F
The thing about this bike split was that I had to borrow a bike from a girl on the coast guard team because it was a road-bikes-only kind of race. It was a bit awkward, but I hung on. Jumping on to that lead pack of girls was thrillllling! Total ITU style and it was bitchin! Such a rush.
Average speed = 22.1

T2= 0:38

Run = 7:17, 95/152, 31/76 F
Run pace = 7:19

Overall time = 22:51
Overall Place = 49/152 OA, 6/76 F
