Swim could have been better.
What would you do differently?:

Need to work on my navigation and sighting!!!
Transition 1

Slow transition times, bc i never practiced them.
What would you do differently?:

Need to make times faster. Almost 5 minutes is way too slow.

Bike portion was good, for not stressing it. I could have gone a little faster but I wasn't sprinting, just going pretty comfortable.
What would you do differently?:

Have a little faster pace.
Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

Could have faster transition time, but never practiced so.

Get faster bc I don't change my shoes, just need to take off helmet, put on bib number, and drink some water.
  • 26m 14s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 15s  min/km

Need to work on my running, would run, then take breaks and walk. But wasn't sprinting the run, so considering; not bad.
What would you do differently?:

Run at a consistent speed instead of stopping to walk.
Post race
Warm down:

I walked around a little. I should have warmed down more.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I didn't want to stress my body since it was my first triathlon.

Event comments:

The course was somewhat hilly, especially on the bike course. Once you passed that portion though, the rest was nice and downhill. It was a great, beautiful sunny day for September. For my first triathlon, there was nothing more I could have asked for. The awards were amazing and location was very pretty. Thanks to all the volunteers, SetUpEvents for the VERY organized event, and my family and friends for coming to support me! :)
