A bit of a disappointing day at the races. Despite the extremely choppy water, Stef finished just a tad behind her usual pace in the swim. And according to her bike computer, she was on pace to finish the 2nd leg in about 1:35; a snafu on the course, however, added an extra half hour to her ride, and she exceeded the time limit by mere minutes. So a sad end to this triathlon, but we do not despair because Stef would have met both her personal goals: finishing well under 4 hours and being ahead of several other racers.
A couple pics from the event:
Stef is the one in the orange swim cap.

On to the next race in September!
