2004 Race Reports

I finally have race reports for my three 2004 races. I started the season with a good performance at the White Lake Sprint triathlon, then made a few serious training/execution errors at the Over the Mountain and Pinehurst Olympic distance races.

I'm still not sure what my goals are for 2005, but I'm toying with jumping in the deep end of the pool and trying to do the Blue Devil Ironman distance race. I know I can train myself to do the 2.4 mile swim and the 112 mile bike, but I'm not sure about the 26.2 mile marathon. I'll have to see how much progress I can make with my running. If I don't do the Blue Devil, I will probably try to do a half Ironman, but focus on doing a SOLID Olympic. I'll definitely do the White Lake Sprint race again, as it makes a good benchmark for measuring year-to-year progress.
