Age Group Rank = 4/34
Pre-race routine:

Got up at 5:45, ate a pb sandwich, had some coffee and gatorade. Racked my bike, picked up chip and got body marked.
Event warmup:

Ran part of the run course to get my mile markers, was going to ride but ran out of time. Swam a few sprints before my wave started.
  • 13m 29s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 38s / 100 yards

Good swim, my plan was to go all out, not hold back. Sighted well, no problems getting around the buoys, a little crowded at the last turn where you caught up to the earlier wave.
What would you do differently?:

Draft. I could not find anyone to draft off of.
Transition 1
  • 00m

No transition times for some reason,but I had a good one.
  • 41m 3s
  • 14 miles
  • 20.46 mile/hr

I had a good bike, the transition times are included in the bike times, I think my average was closer to 22. There was a guy in my age group from the tri club that passed me so I wanted to keep him within sight on the bike, that helped push me on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

You can always go faster but I was pretty happy with my bike.
Transition 2
  • 00m
What would you do differently?:

Got out of my shoes too early on the bike, probably with a 1/2 mile to go, oops:)
  • 22m 41s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 17s  min/mile

I really wanted to be under 22 for the run, the mile markers were way off but I had run the course before so I had mine picked out. I ran pretty even splits, just did not have any more speed. At the turn around I was in front of a few people that I wanted to beat so I just concentrated on not slowing for the last part of the run.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster
Post race
Warm down:

Jumped in the lake, it felt great!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

This was pretty much it for me, I was 18 seconds off of 3rd place which I'm sure I could have picked up somewhere.

Event comments:

I love this weekend, we went up on Friday, worked the race on Saturday and race on Sunday. Beautiful venue, great weather, what more could you ask for.
