Race Name: Xterra Uwaharrie Offroad Triathlon
Location: Uwharrie National Forrest, Troy, NC
Distances: 1000 Meter Swim, 24K Mountain Bike, 10K Trail Run
I raced in the Xterra Uhwarrie (open class) offroad triathlon today. It was a grueling race with some serious climbs, rocky throughout, boulders, mud, you name it… By the time I transitioned into the run, both quads, hams and glutes were cramping. I ran thinking that eventually they’d ease up, but they never did. I ran a slooooow 9:05 pace.
I didn’t have any major spills or issues on the bike, but fell 4 times on the run. I just couldn’t seem to keep my feet picked up since they were cramping.
I finished 1st in my age division and 17th overall. My finish time was 3 hours, 8 minutes and some change (first place finished at 2:38.
Special thanks goes out to Jeremy Jenks for being my running partner for 98% of the run. I was a hurting camper and your companionship got me through it.
