Mattoon Meltdown!

posted on Oct 31 2013 by Wild Card

While Jeff and Kelly were winning State TT Championship titles, Martin was down at Lake Mattoon on August 31, where the annual Great Illini Half Iron Distance Triathlon was held: 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike TT, plus a half marathon to finish it up. 

The good news: my transitions were excellent (about a minute each), I won 1st place in my age group by 40 minutes (!!), and I came in 7/98 overall, my best finish so far in that race.

I’m gonna admit upfront that I had very low expectations for this race. I did crappy at the TT on Tuesday and then didn’t feel that great on Wednesday Night. My expectations were downgraded when I arrived at Bloomington and saw that 50% of the course was uphill and the temperature was in the 90s. Both of which cause me to struggle.
