I was pleased with the way I went in Chicago considering I hadn’t really tapered for the race since I was trying to focus all my training on end of the season with Muskoka, Austin, and World Champs as my main focus. It was quite a strong field. The bike was really fast as everyone had to chase the leader, Matt Reed. I felt good through the first 2-3 miles of the run and then the heavy training load caught up to me and I had a large bonk. I was still able to hold on for 6th place. Next day was my birthday. Happy Birthday to me. Where’s all my presents?
