Congrats to Chuck Alt! He raced in the Smithfield Tri this weekend. Below is his race report.
425 people showed up for this warm-up Tri yesterday in Smithfield. At start time the sun was out and if it weren't so windy I would have called it a nice day. This is a pool swim (300m snake style) so its just long enough to get you wet for the bike ride. They start you every 10s so the starts ranged from 10 am - 11:45 or so. The winning time was 46:31 by a guy from Richmond.
2 weeks after the Shamrock I still wasn't feeling great and posted times that were slower than last year in both the bike and run leg. I was surprised to see I placed 3rd in my age group so it must have been a pretty weak field. I just squeaked under an hour with 59:01 and 55th overall.
