5/18/14 Tempe International Olympic: chasing the big guy

Tempe, AZ.  I have been watching Lewis Elliott win local tri’s since my second race.  He is the local stud!  By this year, I was ready to challenge him, and he met the challenge, with gusto, dropping his PR for the course in order to beat me.  My second place in a 1:57 was great, thanks to Lewis keeping me hungry!

I kicked it off with a great swim, in 17:40, 2 minutes ahead of Lewis.

He busted himself hard to catch me on the bike, splitting a wicked fast 55 minute leg.  My split was a 1:00:15, not bad.

On the run, we each turned in low 37’s, as I was not able to overcome his lead off the bike.

My final time of 1:57:11 is a PR for Olympic courses.

Lewis, I am still coming for ya!  One of these days, one of these days . . .
