Very chilly start. Tights, cap and gloves worn.
Last year time for this run was 24:13
This years time was of 23:09 was 1:04 faster
What would you do differently?:
When I came in from the first run, I shed my running cap and gloves and because I was pretty warmed up. I decided not to put on my wind breaker for the bike ride. Foregoing the wind breaker turned out to be a good decision.
Last years transition was 1:17
This years transition of 1:38 was 21 seconds slower
I was a little chilled in the beginning of the ride but for the most part was glad I left the wind breaker back in the transition area.
Last years time was 39:34
This years time of 40:13 was 39 seconds slower.
Did not need by running cap or gloves for final 5K. Was well warmed up now.
Last years transition was 1:22
This years transition of 1:32 was 10 seconds slower
Last years time for this run was 25:48
This years time for this run of 24:43 was 1:05 faster.
Last years total race time 1:32:16
This years total race time 1:31:15 is 1:01 faster than last year. Both 5K runs faster than last year. Transitions and bike segment slower than last year.

Usual Eggo breakfast and one Boost. Stretched and massage before leaving for race. Before leaving for race I put on one set of cold weather clothing. Then I relented and decide to change everything and put my warm weather outfit on. When I left for the race at 5:45 temp at my home was 56 degrees. That was appropriate with the clothing I currently had on. However, at the race site it was 42 degrees.Burrrrr. So, I then put my cold weather clothing back on which consisted of tights, and a base layer with my short sleeve jersey over that. I ended up using my running cap and gloves also for the first 5K. I also put my wind breaker at my bike in the transition area for possible use for the bike segment.
A few intervals around the starting line. Felt pretty good today warming up, no initial stiffness, felt loose and ready to go.
