Visited porta only once...not very nervous..just another workout...just one I want to BEAT last years time.
Event warmup:

Got in the water a bit 15 minutes early. Got a little cold. Wasn't sure if my teeth were chattering due to cold or nerves.

Holy COW went from 144 place out of the swim to 106 on the bike. SWEET!! This was where I rocked. The headwind was bad...but I stayed in Areo a ton. Was worried about eating on the way out due to the wind..needed to keep my hands on the handles! Thank goodness I have done many rides in the wind...don't like it and feel like i was struggling...but kept hoping coming home wouldn't be that bad....and as soon as we turned...QUIET! WHOO HOO>>>>I am off to the races. Pick that speed up. Did not let the speed go below 17 all the way home. Ate one GU and some cliff bar.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...felt really good.
Transition 2
  • 02m 25s

Talked a bit here...but nothing too bad. A guy in my rack was already done so we were talking a bit.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 11m 35s
  • 6.3 miles
  • 11m 22s  min/mile

Walked the first 4 minutes...I know plan called for 5 minutes, but couldn't resit. Was running after 4 and felt kept running. I'll say it's because I didn't have my interval going on my watch so I couldn't keep track of when to walk...yea right. Ok, so got to the first Aid station and walked and drank....then ran again...and kept running. Got sucked into looking at the times and yea, kept running. Thinking all the time...probably shouldn't be running w/o walking...might mess up Victoria....but still I ran. I think I walked couple of times through the first 4 miles..but then on the way walking for this chick. the last .8 miles I cranked it up to a 10:30 pace...
first time at the end of a race I was spent....I worked hard and felt pretty good. Ankle was making a bit of a stink but nothing too bad.
What would you do differently?:

nothing really except maybe follow my plan.... :)
Post race
Warm down:

Soaked legs in lake after race. Ate Bagel w/ p&j...hung out with friends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Stressing about hurting myself for Victoria...but again that didn't seem to slow me down too much!

Event comments:

Had a BLAST! Fun time with fellow BTers and friends.
THANKS TO David (briderdt) for the RACE ENTRY!~~
