Race Coverage

Good Swim. Strong Bike. Solid Run. PR....



By Shyanne McGregor

Eagleman 70.3 (MD) Race Report - My goal for this race was to go into it calm and confident and the focus on the process the whole time.

In the past I’ve made the mistake of focusing too much on the outcome. The outcome is not within my control and focusing on that only leads to more stress and anxiety.

If I could focus on executing a solid race one step at a time, something that IS within my control, my outcome goals may be met.

So, here’s my quick race report:

Swim: I had a good swim in some choppy water...

Bike: My power meter didn’t work so I went by heart rate and feel. Had Some shifting issues towards the end of the bike where my chain kept slipping down into the small ring. So for a while I was spinning and going nowhere. Thank God, that only lasted a few minutes. It was smooth sailing for the last 11’ish miles.

(Of course this stuff only happens on race day!). I felt strong on the bike the whole time.

Run: A solid run. I have work to do before Kona. Even though I executed as well as I could oneagleresult.jpg the day, I missed my ultimate goal by 2 minutes. But I can’t be too disappointed with a 70.3 PR of 4:29, age group win and 4th OA.  I’m excited to get back to work!
