Race Review By Ken Frankenbery:

First Rule of races is always show up!  The weather forecast was bad with rain showers predicted for race time, but I loaded up and headed there anyway.  Clouds looked bad, but set I set up in the transition area , warmed up, and promoter started race a few minutes early to beat the rain.
First 2 mile run went well-14:08/7:04 pace. I had ad a good transition and as I started on bike a few drops started.  The sky looked bad, but no real rain.  I pushed bike hard and averaged 18.3 mph.  Another quick transition and run 2 was 15:06/7:33 pace. Total Time 1:03:48
The sky cleared and we finished to clear blue skies.

I was happy with my race as I finished 15th overall, 2nd in my age group, and beat my 2019 time ( by 10 second!),  I  got to catch up with 6 Teammates ( 5 did race). It was a great workout !
