Swam slower than last year though I felt faster. Not sure what to say except I still swam in the top of the age group. Water felt fresh, crisp.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure what to do differently, my swim was competitive with the elite/pros.
Transition 1
  • 01m 29s

Got onto bike okay but had problems getting feet into shoes. Its taken faster before but overall time is good.
What would you do differently?:

Keep practicing.
  • 1h 01m 15s
  • 22 miles
  • 21.55 mile/hr

Pace felt more fresh than I was expecting. I hadn't ridden since Escape six weeks earlier, except for twice the week of this race for 30 minutes each (as I focused October on the Marine Corps Marathon). Took advantage of the tailwind during the first half and hammered through the second half.
What would you do differently?:

January 2012 begins the year of bike focus. As for this race, I can't complain. No improvements over last year but wasn't expecting any either.
Transition 2
  • 01m 17s
What would you do differently?:

3rd in age group; no complaints.
  • 45m 51s
  • 6.6 miles
  • 06m 57s  min/mile

I can't believe I ran this fast, coming off of MCM two weeks earlier! Two minutes faster then last year and I felt fresh the entire time.
What would you do differently?:

Run more marathons?!?! Just kidding!
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Marine Corps Marathon two weeks earlier.

Event comments:

A PR as far as podium placement is concerned...and not expected, coming off of MCM. So much for a "recovery race!" Its been a great year of races, several PR's and taking my competitive fitness to the next levels.
