  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 22s / 100 meters
Comments:

Swim went well. I was drafting with group for the first 200m, but after the two buoys, I started getting my sighting all out of place. I wasn't sure which buoy to follow when I got near the 2nd Doritos buoy. Swam extra 100yards. Easily. Had to stop to correct my navigation twice. I was way off course the second time.
What would you do differently?:

I know how the course is set up, but I wish I studied the swim buoys better.
Transition 1

Comments:

Didn't really rush onto my bike. Made sure I stuffed everything in a bag, which was not necessary.
What would you do differently?:

Put my shoes on my bike and put it on while riding

Comments:

Bike went great. Not much to improve there. It really helped to drive through the course before the race.
What would you do differently?:

None
Transition 2
  • 02m 23s
Comments:

Took a little time putting my socks on. I realized I put my socks on backwards so I had to correct it after putting everything on.
What would you do differently?:

None
Run
  • 44m 55s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 29s  min/km
Comments:

Obviously run is my strong leg. Made a mistake of using the event ankle (plastic) band. It dug into back of my ankle. It was bleeding bad by end of the race.
What would you do differently?:

Never put plastic ankle band. Ever.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around. Get medical help to cleanse my ankle cut. Eat couple slices of pizza and banana.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Didn't want to push too hard for a B race

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?
