Choshi Marine triathlon went smooth and seamless. It had been 8 years since I had done the race, and it was nice to see the modest progression of my swim and bike.
The swim was lightning fast as usual. I did 24 minutes, which is about my PB for a 1500 meter swim. It is in the Choshi Marine harbor, completely protected from the ocean surf. I did 25-26 minutes 8 years ago so my swim was satisfying.
The bike was challenging with rolling hills and hairpin turns every 3-4k. Managed 34 kph, or 1:09 without transitions. Full result stats are below. You can see my bike is the most competitive as usual.
The run was hot yet gratifying as I was able to maintain 4:30 pace while viewing friends on the course's short, tight loops.
My total time was 2:24:00, good for 7th in my age group out of 95 athletes.
Gearing up Hillary, it's her 10-year birthday in 2016 and she still shines!
I drove back Tim and Hoel, pictured above. Hoel, a rising star on the tri circuit, let me beat him on his last race in Japan. Bon chance, Hoel!
