Well, I see nobody has posted anything on this race, so I'll go ahead-
Battle At Midway is held at the Olympic cross country ski venue Soldier Hollow, in Midway, Utah. It was my first Olympic, and it was just a fantastic race. The whole olympic feel, with names and times scrolling on the big electric board and Dave Warden of Tri-Talk doing play by play from the tower was very cool.
Last year was the first year, they had 200, this year it ballooned to 500.
I had a great race, 2:26:48, I was thrilled to break 2:30. Last year it would have been good for first in my age group by 14 minutes, this year I was 12th out of 32! A fast group of people!
There was a lot of pros and elites, which added to the whole experience.
I set a PR in the swim, 25:09 from gun to shore (results show differently because timer was at entrance to transition) so I was thrilled with that, but then too slow on the bike to be competitive, and pulled in a 45 minute run, was hoping for 42.
Overall a great race, I highly recommend it. I'll do it next year for sure, but I'll work a LOT harder on my bike next time, and do more bricks to hopefully pull off a better run too!
