LTF Indoor Tri Results

>> Monday, February 25, 2008

If you haven’t seen it, check out the previous post that contains my race report from the Lifetime Fitness Indoor Triathlon yesterday. The results were just posted online, and here’s how I did:



The scoring is based on how you are ranked with everyone else. There were 97 people total in the event, so if you went the farthest in the swim, you earned 97 points. If you got 10th in the bike, you earned 87 points. All 3 events are tallied to determine an overall score.

Place for each event:
- Swim: 22nd
- Bike: 18th
- Run: 5th
- Overall: 11th out of 97 Tied for 10th out of 97

I had hoped for a top-10 finish overall, so I didn’t quite make it. But, like I said in my last post, I PRed in all 3 categories, so I can’t complain. Oops. I thought I placed 11th like the results show. In reality, I tied for 10th, because we both have 239 points. I had hoped for a top 10 finish! Sweet! And I PRed in all 3 categories! Sweeter! Here are my numbers from last year, where I placed 16th:



And here are my numbers from 2 years ago, where I placed 25th:



...So I guess I'm getting better!! I hope to see some of the folks that I met yesterday at some outdoor tris this season! And don’t miss the previous post with more race details (and sweaty boobs). Thanks all!

Congrats on the PR's. You were nasty fast like having sex with carrot top! (By far the most interesting/funny analogy I've recently heard)

so. to recap:
last year: guac/hershey squirts

this year: sex with carrot top

man, i wish i lived your life.
congrats on the PR. i think if you polished off 10 bowls of wheaties, you may have made top 10 :)

nice numbers steve!! i predict you're in the top 10 next year!!!

Hmmm...

Each part was 10 minutes long? You got 10 minutes for each Transition? The resistance was set for each bike? How could they set all the bikes all at the same resistance?

Interesting concept. Tell me more about the set up of the event

Tac means that in a purely metrosexual way

Holy crap! Nice job and what progress you have made!

Small world though.. the guy that took 10th? I know "of" him!

I can't wait to do my tri in Maple Grove in March! :)

way to go! not only PRs in all three events but 11th overall! :) great job!

That performance deserves a chalupa! I think it's so cool that you folks way up north do indoor tris like this. Makes me (almost) jealous.

jborscheid 10:05 PM, February 25, 2008  

Awesome job! So does this mean next year will be 'drama free'? Or does it loop back around to the swim?

I don't know about tris but maybe I'll see you around for a duathalon. :-)

Cross your fingers....I'm signed up for the Grandma's half marathon, well the lottery.

Great placement and congrats on the PRs. I love reading about the different events you do. The indoor stair race, this indoor triathlon...you do cool things in the winter. :) It's very inspiring. Although I noticed you weren't wearing the whitey tighties in this race...

Good job Steve. Getting better every year!

Dana 7:04 AM, February 26, 2008  

Thanks for the well wishes & great job on improving every year.

Peter 9:29 AM, February 26, 2008  

Steve, looks to me like you were top 10. There was a tie at 239 points. In my book that places you at 10T. What am I missing?

Stef 11:44 AM, February 26, 2008  

Nice Job! So exciting to see the improvement stacked up in black and white like that. Three PRs too!

Tri-John 2:17 PM, February 26, 2008  

Great numbers... nice burritos!

(From the previous post!)

J~Mom 3:25 PM, February 26, 2008  

Congrats!!! Great steady improvement you have shown!

Thanks for the recap of the indoor triathlon, they have them here and I wondered exactly how they work.

brendaj 11:16 PM, February 26, 2008
