Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4:45. Had my usual breakfast of oatmeal, peanut butter, honey, and almonds. J drove to North East and it took us about an hour to get there.
Event warmup:

None. There was a swim warm up but the sprint triathletes went off first, then everyone for the Oly ... then my AG. wasn't worth swimming then standing around wet for an hour.
  • 30m 49s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 03s / 100 meters

A solid swim !
What would you do differently?:

Not too much - work on my sighting, just swim more.
Transition 1
  • 02m 47s

A long run to T1 from the water.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - run faster from the water to T1?
  • 1h 22m 58s
  • 23.2 miles
  • 16.78 mile/hr

The bike again continues to be my limiter, but I am getting faster. Am getting more comfortable going downhill and turning in aero. Spent 99% of the race in aero ! I was just fitted last week and I think it's working out for me.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 39s

Yeah, I thought I was 855 (I was 885) and headed to the wrong rack ! d'oh! Other than that though, not bad. Took my bike shoes off and slipped my running shoes on. Grabbed my number felt and hat and headed out.
What would you do differently?:

Um, remember my race number.
  • 54m 24s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 46s  min/mile

A kind of hilly out and back. Mile 2 was the worst mentally. Once I got to the turn around I really picked it up! Passed a lot of people which is a big ego boost!
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed water, met up with J and found the BTers. Got food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not much. Training for IMCOZ is going well and I PR'd this distance by FOURTEEN minutes !!

Event comments:

A good race put on by CGI racing. oh, the tshirt sucks, but if that's the worst, I'll take it !

and a 14 minute PR! schweeeeet.
