Age Group Rank
race weight: 219lbs
Nutrition: breakfast coffee, english muffin/pb, banana, water
hammer bar and some cliff shots up to 30 min before
Gu drink on the bike. Won't use that again as it upset my stomach a bit. will go back to water and gels or try another sports drink.
swim only. some stretching.
01m 50s / 100 meters
lined up way left to stay out of the pack and had clean water. didn't touch anyone. Good swim for me. No issues.
I think the bulk of my time was spent getting socks on. Going sockless will save alot of time.
Did the rubberbands and shoes attached move and had a clean mount.
Enjoyed the bike leg. Not sure I had much more in me. My climbing is the weakest part of my game and on this course that will hurt. Was strange, don't think I saw anyone from my wave, but passed several from the wave ahead of me and got passed by the speedsters in the wave behind.
Still trying for the perfect T2 :
). I ran past my spot a lost several seconds. Looks like i got in the top 10 OA. Some day I will reach nirvana and stand atop the t2 podium. It is my only goal in triathlon.
What would you do differently?:
concentrate more on rack location.
07m 02s min/mile
I guess i don't have much to say on any of my segments. i thought i performed as well as i could and had a good run. No water or nutrition. Good kick at the end. Thought i left it all out on the course.
eat. hung out in the philly tri tent for a bit. ate more.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
skillz on hillz
Great race. really enjoyed this year's changes
(new transition area, new swim course, etc
) thought it was improvement from last year. Great job by CGI. The volunteers were excellent and plentiful
(although the army of volunteers at the run aid station was a little intimidating!
). Weather was perfect. It was a great day to be alive and racing.
