8/10/2014 USAT Age Group Nationals Sprint

The Sprint at Nationals came the day after my Olympic race, one in which I did very well.  Happy with that result, I had nothing to lose in the Sprint event.  Yet, I did even better with a  podium finish!  3rd overall in 20-24 age group.  I was surprised a time over 1 hour would be on the podium but it was hot out and the transition areas were huge.

My swim was fastest of the day, at 9:32 (1:11/100m pace).  No one else was under 10:00.

On the bike, I split a 29:56, one of only 5 riders under 30 minutes.

The run was good for 11th rank, at 17:48 (5:45 pace).

The winner, Mike Meehan got me by 2 minutes, and the runner up, Dustin Wiegl, had me by 1 minute.  They had great runs under 16:30 (5:20 pace).

This wrapped up a great summer of improvement.
