Headed up to Maine Saturday afternoon.  Checked into the hotel and headed over to the race site to pick up my packet.  Also dropped off 13 pairs of old running shoes for the Nike shoe recycling program and a bag of food for the Harvest Food Drive to support the South Berwick food pantry.  Got some cool schwag and checked out the beach, the hill and the finish chute.  Walked up the hill.  Whew! </p>

<p>Headed back to the hotel to eat the dinner I'd brought along and just hang out.  Wondered how people could sleep with their bikes still attached to the outside of their cars.  Prepped race stuff and it was lights out at 9:30pm.  Alarm was sent to go off around 4:15am, but I woke up to the sounds of people, other triathletes I assumed, moving about the hotel before that.  Got ready, packed up the car, checked out of the hotel and we were on our way in the dark.  Ate breakfast in the car.  Was presently surprised that not only was I calm, but my gut was too!<br><br>
Parking at the venue, Spring Hill, was a snap and we were guided to our spot by helpful volunteers with lights.  I recently found my headlamp to be dead, even with new batteries, so I used the flashlight app on my phone so I could see well enough to pump my tires.  Picked up my chip, got bodymarked and made my way into the transition area.  My rack was already pretty full already, but I found a spot at the end near the fence and commenced my slowest set up of transition ever.  It was almost like I'd forgotten what to do, I moved so slowly.  Chatted with the other women there.  Was surprised to see a couple of women arrive well past 6am, but we did our best to make room for them.<br><br>
Hit the port-o-pots, suited up and headed down to the beach as transition was closing and the pre-race meeting starting.  No time for a swim warm-up.  Ah, well.  We had a moment of silence in honor of September 11 before the National Anthem and then the waves were off!  Watched the first 2 waves pass the 1st buoy and then promptly head toward the 3rd before being corrected by folks out on the water.  The message was quickly spread by volunteers on the beach that we should stay to the right in order to hit the second buoy.  Soon enough, it was time for my wave, the fourth, to line up on the beach.  "Go, go, go, go!" and we were off!  Generally, I prefer in water starts to beach starts, but this went okay.  Of course, I was not one of the athletes sprinting into the water.  I waded in, sort of in the middle of things I think, and just started swimming, trying not to swim on top of anybody.  Was able to settle into breathing every three strokes very quickly AND find feet.  And these feet were very much on course so I found that I didn't need to sight very often.  Toward the end of my first loop, the contact on my feet felt a bit more punchy, so I assumed it was the fastest swimmers from the previous waves and I tried to get out of the way.  Finished the first loop, ran for a bit on the beach, and headed back in.  Easy peasy!  I was really into this swim!  Found feet again, made my way around the buoys again, and before I knew it my hand hit sand.  Time for the hill!  Removed cap and goggles, removed wetsuit to the waist and started up.  Trotted along on the "flat" part, then tried to powerwalk the rest.  Tom trotted up along side, trying to snap a photo or two.</p>

Had warmed up so much up the hill that I *almost* didn't struggle into my longsleeve tech shirt, but decided to anyway.  Added a bandana to my head, but skipped the socks.  Slow T1 for me, but I wanted to let my heart rate settle a bit.  Started out on the bike and was immediately glad for the long sleeves.  Soon after, I wished I'd put on socks, but it never got worse than my toes getting a bit numb.  Plan was to keep things in HR zone 3-4 on the way out to the loops and for the first loop, then spend more time in high HR zone 4 during the second loop.  Went for about 3/4 mile before I realized that I hadn't started my bike computer.  Thanked volunteers at every opportunity.  They were so enthusiastic!  Went by Alpaca Fields and the alpacas were out so gave them a shout, "Woooo, alpacas!!!"  They looked up in acknowledgment.  Wish there'd been more alpacas out on the course.  At the beginning of my second loop, it began to spit rain a bit.  I started to prepare mentally for riding in the rain, but it never got worse than that and it didn't last for long.  I was relieved because I hadn't left my running shoes in a plastic bag.  Now, I rode the course at the end of July and felt that part of it (past the second bottle hand up) was the *most fun* I've ever had on a bike.  I was amused that I didn't feel that way during the race.  I was on top of my hydration and nutrition so the slightly negative thoughts that my brain started to shoot me took me by surprise.  Maybe it was all the nature?  Maybe it was the weather?  Chilly and a stiff wind that I dealt with for about half of my ride?  At times, I imagined my riding buddies were there.  I thought about all of my tri-buddies and all of their support and encouragement.  Most of all, I thought about all of the time I spent training for this moment and how so very much I wanted to be out there and how lucky I am to do this stuff and how I wanted to finish.  I kept plugging along.  Seeing volunteers out on the course was a huge boost.  Nearing Spring Hill and seeing runners heading out…OMG!  I still get to run!  Given the wind, I was pleasantly surprised to make it back to transition under my time goal for the bike!  Dismounted with wobbly legs, but managed to stay upright.<br><br>
Tried to be more swift in T2.  Probably should have sat down to stretch like one of my neighbors did.  Socks, shoes, grabbed my race belt and handheld water bottle.  Got the legs moving…hey!  Legs feel pretty good!…and headed out.  Headed out of transition the wrong way, toward the bike out.  A volunteer redirected me, then actually apologized for not doing so sooner.  "No worries."  I told him.  "I should have payed more attention to the map!"  On my way out of transition, I noticed Tom looking for me to come in on the bike.  I think he was surprised to hear it announced that I was headed out on my run!  Realized two things as I headed out of Spring Hill and onto the run course.  1) I had not removed my longsleeve shirt.  2) I had not stopped my bike computer.  Ah, well.  Could remove shirt if necessary, but that bike computer was gonna be going for like the next 2.5 hours.  <br><br>
Had some problems adjusting my race belt, I'd gotten a new one with a small pocket and slots for gels, so it wouldn't slide off of my hips.  I think this will be in my race photos.  I do all of my training runs longer than 1.5 hours and all of my races 13.1 miles or longer as 9 min run and 1 min walk intervals.  The walk parts aren't a stroll, they're brisk.  So, this was my plan for this 13.1 mile run.  I'd had some niggles of discomfort on the bike that I hadn't had in awhile and I knew sticking to this interval would be crucial to doing the kind of run I'd envisioned.  I also like to take tiny sips of fluid every 5 min during a run because it prevents my getting a sloshy stomach.  Aid stations were about every 1.5 miles on the course, so my plan was to carry water and gels and get gatorade, and a gel if needed, from the aid stations.  So, between the run:walk intervals, the tiny sip intervals, and the aid stations, I had several mini-goals to work toward and the time/distance clicked along.  Asked for gatorade at the first aid station and was handed a cup of clear-ish looking fluid.  Uck!  Heed!  Melon, I think.  Eeeew.  Was relived that gatorade G2 pro was at all of the other aid stations.  Ran along with aches and pains and began to think of them as "my friends."  Just running along with my friends.  It's always weird and sort of hard to stick to your run:walk intervals, but the time to do them is from the start of your run and IF you feel up to it, not do them at the end of your run.  I didn't really notice other folks walking until like mile 5.  A fellow athlete out on the run gave me a loud shout out and, after reading his RR, I think it must have been Zdoc.  All I knew at the time was that it was enthusiastic encouragement from someone unfamiliar; I was kind of startled, but I had written my name on my bib, so…but still, I wondered who it was.  Used sponges to wet my bandana because I thought it might be nice.  Got to say, the weather was 100% fantastic for a long run!  Low 60s and overcast.  It did mist/spit rain for a very short moment.  Had to hit the port-o-potty just before mile 6.  Was well-hydrated!  Cheered for a few women I began to recognize out on the course and gave shouts of encouragement to lots of other men and women.  Got a TON of complements on my Skirt Sports longsleeve runner's dream t, both on the bike and the run from athletes and volunteers, so that was fun, you know, it's all about how you look.  Did well with my tiny sips of fluid, taking water from my handheld, and gatorade at all of the aid stations.  Gel every 20-30 minutes depending on how I felt.  This seemed to work very well because I felt like I could have gone further,  though my left leg ached and my right knee was complaining and neither endorsed this feeling.  <br><br>
Saw the mile 12 marker and was super happy.  Hit the last aid station for some water and began to feel euphoric!  Am seeing more and more people as I round the corner into Spring Hill and they are all cheering.  Head into the chute and down the hill to the finish.  The approach to the finish was downhill on uneven, grassy ground, but I made my way the best I could, stabilizers in my legs desperately trying to help me out.  No finish line sprint for this race…is it really almost over?  See/hear Tom.  Hear the announcer call my name and I raise my arms in acknowledgment.  I am over the finish line!  </p>

Instantly, I am greeted by more enthusiastic volunteers, my chip is off, I am offered water or gatorade (I choose water), a medal, and a finishers' t-shirt.  Sweet!  Grabbed a banana half.  Met up with Tom, who commented that I didn't seem fatigued or that I had just completed 70.3 miles.  Went straight away to post-race massage.  There was still plenty of food left!  The roast turkey smelled unfreakin'believably devine and the stuffing, mashed potatoes, squash, gravy, cranberry sauce, and green beans looked great!  Yummy!  And, all was served on REAL plates with REAL utensils.  No plastic!  Was feeling too cold to grab my free Shipyard beer, but knew that I'd be having some red wine in the comfort of my home later.  Plus, they were practically begging us to get our stuff out of transition at this point.</p>

My first full 70.3 (I swam and biked at Timberman 70.3 in 2009 on a relay with Tom as the runner)!  I really feel like I met all of my goals and I am super happy!  Am amused by the negative thoughts I had on the bike…I *knew* I wasn't going to quit, but they were still there.  It was unexpected.  I really wanted to beat my first HM on the run, but said I'd also be happy with 2:30 or better, so I consider it good.  If not for my aches and pains, I feel I could have gone a bit faster, but am pleased with my steady effort.<br><br>
I would do this distance again.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" title=""><br><br>
Cannot say enough great things about Pumpkinman, the volunteers, the post race chow…this is an event that should not be missed.  Both the bike and the run are rolling sorts of hills and really are very enjoyable.  100% unique.  100% NOT WTC.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you all so much for all of your advice, encouragement and support!!!  The only thing I wish I'd done differently is to have had an LIT hat or visor to wear on the run.  Thanks for reading!<br>

<p> </p>
<p>Way to hold those friends at bay.</p>
<p>They were there, but you didn't let them rent too much space.</p>
<p>For you, they were minor amusements it seemed.  Nice.</p>

<p>Nice job, Cheryl. Speaks a lot to your preparation that you hit all your goals (almost spot on) - and finished comfortably. After gastro distress in both my HIMs (one at Pmpkinman last year), I have total respect for people like you who hit nutrition and finish strong. Beside the socks, sounds like you had the whole thing nailed! With a little bit of sunshine on the bike, probably would have been a close to perfect race ... amazing for your first one. Glad that it was such a positive experience.</p>

<p>What a fantastic race report.  I love reading reports from races I did, because it allows me to relive them from a different perspective.  The pictures were great.  On Sat, I actually took about 15 min of video of the race/my wife.  Great stuff to save.</p>
<p>Good for you for achieving all of your goals and hitting all the rough spots smoothly.  You sound like you were very happy, in spite of the hard effort.  Isn't that what it's all about.</p>
<p>Congratulations again, and I hope some day our paths will really cross out here in metrowest.</p>

<p>Fantastic Debut! Holy cow, great time and great times <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The negative thoughts I suspect were do to over-doing it on the bike. Always happens to me on the run at this distance and that's when the effort level is and has been up there for a while. If you backed off for the second half of the bike a bit, I bet you'd have rocked even more time off your run (not that you did bad, you kicked my butt! hehe!)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Excellent job! Too bad it's so far away for me, sounds like a fun one to try out</p>

<p>Way to go, awesome times and looking good to boot!!  Good job of not letting those negative thoughts get the best of you.  There was nothing negative about those results <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;" title=""></p>

<p>Hooray for you, Cheryl!  Congrats on finishing your first Half Iron and hitting all your goals.  Thanks for the great pictures of The Hillclimb too and letting me steal them to show everyone.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I agree it was a great venue and a really well run event.  Not to make you jealous though, we get clam chowdah at the sprint.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>CONGRATS!</p>

<p>You beat every single one of your time goals.  Sounds like you knew what you were capable of and executed your race flawlessly!  (Well, other than running the wrong way out of T2).  Great job Cheryl!</p>

<p>Cake, you have been fun to watch on your journey toward the greatness of achieving your goals. And what I love so much about this race for you was that you are like Exhibit A for a triathlete with lofty goals. You set a goal, committed to it fully with mind AND body, including lifestyle, and got to work doing it, without excuses dragging you down, and you pushed forward hard but also realistic in evalution of self. And my oh my have you learned a lot -- and I know this not only from these forums but also from your race report in how you described the run:walk strategy and, knowing you would have to do it, doing it from the start. Seriously happy for you, and eternally proud of you! Really. You done more than well girl. You done GREAT!</p>

<p>Wow.  Thanks, everyone, so much, for your kind words!  I have learned so much from you all and have gotten so much from you that saying "thanks" seems a little inadequate.  But, thanks anyway! </p>
<p> </p>
<p><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sarah...that's a good way of putting it...I didn't "let them rent too much space."  I would have preferred them to not be there at all, but I did keep things in check.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Looki...we'll see what my next one throws at me!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Zdoc...I think I ride by your house a lot when I meet up with my friends/riding buddies on Cedar Creek.  Maybe I'll get to Walden early some morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ron...I did the first half of the bike a bit more easily than the second half, but backed off again for the last few miles.  HR zn 3-4 all the way with a 165 avg.  89 rpm avg on the bike so I was easier on the pedals than not.  But, yeah, that thought had kinda crossed my mind while I was out there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sparty...best post-race spread EVAH!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Reg, MtnGrl, Bannon, Mike...thanks!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Monica...I <em>know</em> you <em>will</em> be back out there!  I might have to miss it next year, though.  Tom's sister is getting married "sometime in late August or September."</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Doug...somehow, I did not miss the chowdah at all!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" title="">  Glad you are enjoying the pics!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thor...I even gave up beer for the last month!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>John...thanks!  Lots of Tri Fury folk out there so I thought of you and your family a lot during the run.</p>
