Pre-race routine:

Got up at 5:00am and left The Colony at 5:30. Ate some shredded weat cereal and started my hydration.
Event warmup:

Swam 200M and stretched a bit before race.
  • 05m 18s
  • 300 meters
  • 01m 46s / 100 meters

This was my best thus far. I really worked on my breathing and my pace two months before race. Very pleased with the outcome.
What would you do differently?:

Train more and try to improve on my time.
Transition 1
  • 02m 24s

Had some trouble getting my shirt on over my wet body.
What would you do differently?:

Should consider swimming in a tri shirt or towell dry off a bit. Also look into getting some tri shoes and putting them on the bike to save time in T1.
  • 38m 31s
  • 12 miles
  • 18.69 mile/hr

Need to get tri shoes since my feet start to hurt in my MT Bike shoes. Need to look at other options to get better hydration on the bike for my longer races.
What would you do differently?:

Pedal faster... LOL
Transition 2
  • 01m 26s

Went well. But I lost time taking my bike shoe off and putting on my running shoes. Plus putting on my bib number as well
What would you do differently?:

Put my bib number on my shirt before the ride.
  • 29m 1s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 20s  min/mile

Liked running without fuel belt. I think that helped me a lot and also my T2 time.
What would you do differently?:

Train more. Going to run a half marathon in Dec so I will then start strength training for next year.

Event comments:

I did not know that we were going to get a finishing medal. That was a surprise.
This was my second Tri and I placed second in my clydsdale division. I am racing in this division as a goal to get out of the division and race in my own age group. I love this sport.
