finish time was 00:57:19
so looks like his run split was 15:04, which means nothing off a standardized track, until you compare it to the competition.
not bad. winner was 14:03 and an absolute greyhound. he ran hard which is great to see.
if he'd had been with the big pack, his 15:04 would net him somewhere between 10th and 15th place.
he is racing the next two weekend, internationally. lets see how he gets his head together.
in Mooloolaba, Australia on March 14
and New Plymouth, New Zealand, on March 22.
also, there may have been an issue with the swim today. lost goggles, ounch or kick that dropped him momentarily. he is much better than lukas V. who was genuinely not a swimmer. web had near junior nat. cuts in the pool back in his hs days. he is no chopped liver.. there may be something that happened during the swim today. stay tuned.
Alan, if you are reading this. way to hang in there dood and rip a nice 5k off an otherwise tough day. winners never quit, and quitters never win. we are behind you!! USA Tri!
