White Lake Sprint: Race Report - Part 1

"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.” - Unknown

Another fun and successful race in our 2007 season is complete! It's Monday morning and we're finding it hard to believe that at this time yesterday, we were working our way through the White Lake (or as our coach said, the White Cap) Sprint!

Robyn thrived in her first choppy open water swim, pushed harder than ever on the bike, and paid for it a bit with some cramps on the run. Ray felt solid (but not exceptional) during all three elements, mastered a new bike to run transition technique, and crossed the finish line a few minutes before Rob.

We both focused on the mental training we've been doing for the last several weeks and worked to stay positive throughout the race -- even when Rob completely blew her bike dismount and had to run in the bike an extra 100 yards!

750 yards, 14 miles, 3.1 miles -- check!

Pictures and additional reflection to come.
