Battle of Midway!

The tour continues on down the road to Utah. We rolled into Midway and stayed with our fantastic home stay. We only had two days to get ready for this olympic distance race. To my horror I found out that the run would be held on the Nordic X- Country ski trail. Hilly would be an understatement. I have not raced the shorter distances for quite sometime and the thing is that in Ironman you always have to race 10 per cent slower than you want to but in olympic you have to race 10 per cent faster. HECK.
The race came and went with me finishing in 5th which was ok. Jimmy on the other hand backed up just 1 week after IM with a fantastic 4th..... nice one. With this race tucked away we head off to visit our buddy Linsey and her hubby Chris for the 4th of July festivities.
