Time off and looking forward to some fall cruising then indoor riding this winter.     March 5, 2016 - Myrtle Beach Marathon, SC - Went over to the Dark Side, ha ha, and did it on a handcycle just to get some long distance training and racing back under my belt. Finished 9th out of 13 (2nd quad) in 2:20:23. 38 degrees at the start, headwind along the water. Felt strong early then worn out. Not bad considering last time I did race on a hc was 7 years ago and I went 2:17. Raced with a great group from Baltimore, Kennedy Kreiger Institute's Hope Through Motion team.   March 30, 2016 - TT #1 -46:18.0 for an average speed of 12.96 mph. Not bad for first race of season. 5 more to go.   April 2, 2016 - Cooper River Bridge Run - Charleston, SC - This race had been on my bucket list for a long time. Amazing w/c division, 1+ mile long climb up the bridge, flat otherwise. Rain, cold, headwind then cleared. Only quad. Finished 53:19. 11th overall. Hope to do it again and conquer the bridge next time.   May 4, 2016 - TT #2 - Finish time 42:54.0 not bad. Cool, bit of helping tailwind on front stretch. Ave speed 13.99 mph - lap times 5:53, 6:17, 6:09, 6:05, 6:08, 6:07, 6:12. good conditions, felt strong, need to "find" that extra something (i.e., seating position perhaps?) to get me closer to 40 minutes.   May 25 - 28 - Winston-Salem, NC. USA Cycling Masters and Para Cycling National Championships. Classified and raced in the H1 category. 4 athletes total from across USA. Hard 3 days of racing.

Right on the Cape!!!   September 14, 2016 - Charlotte, NC. 6th time trial, last one of the season (missed the 10 August event because of work travel). 45:54.4. ave speed 13.07 mph. Nice way to finish season. Looking forward to new bike for next year.   December 18, 2016. Jacksonville, FL. Ameris Bank Jacksonville Marathon. 2:39.55 for about a 6 min/mile pace.
