Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5am, coffee, bagel w/P.B. G2. Enjoyed a leisurely early morning at home! I love racing locally!
Event warmup:

Spent 10 minutes on the bike, ran 5 minutes, 300M swim. Felt really good at race time!
  • 07m 1s
  • 437 yards
  • 01m 36s / 100 yards

Started by two's. Wanted to catch Brad in front of me so I could draft him through. Caught him after the turn at 50M and rode his feet until about 175 where he seemed to slow down. I took him at the 200 wall and pushed to the end. Dropped 32 seconds from last year.
What would you do differently?:

Pass earlier.
Transition 1
  • 00m 56s

Had a little trouble mounting and lost about :05.
What would you do differently?:

Uh, hit the saddle! DOH!
  • 42m 35s
  • 15 miles
  • 21.14 mile/hr

I had a pretty good bike with no real trouble with H.R. or fatigue. Felt good throughout but still need to get some strength so I can push the pedals harder! I was 8 seconds slower than '09, dang it!
What would you do differently?:

Spend more time in the saddle.
Transition 2
  • 00m 42s

Good T2
What would you do differently?:

  • 21m 19s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 51s  min/mile

A pretty good run for this course. I was really looking to be a little faster but still had a pretty good run. The trail portion was a bit muddy and slippery along with the craters and rocks. Those conditions change things a little.
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing other than water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Still a little weak on the bike.

Event comments:

Love this race! It's always good to see all the Upstate Tri Club folks at Greenville! This was the 5 year anniversary of my first race and felt really good to place 3rd A.G.!
