Pre-race routine:

Got to transition, set up, talked to other participants.
  • 12m 52s
  • 766 yards
  • 01m 41s / 100 yards

Weird because you have to run part of the course in 3 feet deep water.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Had trouble getting rocks off feet before socks went on.Was really cold from swim.
What would you do differently?:

have more towel showing for feet.
  • 1h 04m
  • 18.64 miles
  • 17.47 mile/hr

Seat post dropped down 3-4 inches during mile three. Didn't have tools so I couldn't fix it, made for a long next 16 miles.
What would you do differently?:

Bring tools with always. Check bolts and wheel alignment in transiton set-up.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Tried to take cycling shoes off twice. Was kind of out of it as I was still cold.
What would you do differently?:

Concentrate on shoes on helmet off.
  • 27m 52s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 58s  min/mile

Legs were pretty shot from low seat post on bike. Feet were still warming up on run.
What would you do differently?:

Need to go out faster. Held good pacing but had a lot left in the tank at the end. Sprinted last quarter mile.
Post race
Warm down:

Water, choclate milk while walking around. Left quad tightened up and was tough to stretch out.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mental error on bike by not having tools with me. Need to plan for contingency that things can and will go wrong.

Event comments:

Great event with a lot of things going on. Wife and son enjoyed the atmosphere, and volunteers were great. Plan doing it again next year.
