Sunday was the Firecracker Sprint on the SouthWest side of the island. I was feeling better (not great) but during my warm up I really could tell that it was going to be a "snotty" race :-) This race had an interesting swim.... the water wasn't so calm which made it a fun 500m swim.
Here was the women's wavy start - - - -
I had a spectacular bike split, Chris let me use his ZIPP wheels for this race and I think that made a big difference. The run was flat and fast like the bike and HORRAY I am finished. I was glad to be done.... somehow the snot rockets just never stopped. I HATE BEING SICK!! I had a great time and enjoyed getting 1st place in my Age Group :-) After enjoying a fabulous breakfast I headed home for another day of resting and recovering from my FLU/RACE weekend.
Here I am with the 1ST PLACE OVERALL: Maggs and another BOCA 1ST PLACE Age Group winner Michele
Look how beautiful the beach was after the race was pau.......
I got to work the next morning and was immediately informed that I had been SELECTED for my request for orders to the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) in San Diego, California. I am happy because this is the duty that I was hoping for, but sad because I am going to have to say good-bye to my wonderful happy life here in paradise. My goal until I have to leave is to continue to have the time of my life......
