What would you do differently?:

Between mile 9 and 10 I would push harder. After mile 10 before the big hill is a downhill. The end of West Lake there is a stretch of about 1/2 mile with a strong headwind that needs to be pushed through b/c you will not lose much energy and it will really boost you going into the next part of the course (especially the hill).
Transition 2
  • 00m

need to remember where the heck my shoes were. Spent too much time looking where to put my bike.
  • 27m 30s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 52s  min/mile

I thought I was doing so poorly I just went through the motions. I could have run a lot faster. The end of the run was much easier than the beginning.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Need to really work on the swim. Especially spotting and swimming in a straight line.

On the bike I can really fly. I did well comparitively with the best in my category without too much effort.

Running I need to incorporate more speed work.

Event comments:

Beautiful challenging course. It was my first race and it really inspired me. I love Montauk and this is a top notch race. The experienced triathletes felt the same way.

It was foggy and my first time in an ocean swim. I stunk but loved it! I wanted to quit twice. The faster swimmers flew by. I "tacked" back and forth like a sailboat.
