Overall Rank = 60/214
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 4/15
Pre-race routine:

Not much, good healthy breakfast.
Event warmup:

Jog until SOB.
  • 05m 21s
  • 300 meters
  • 01m 47s / 100 meters

My time on the website is 6:07 but that includes leaving the pool deck and jogging 1/2 way down a hill. Nice to swim in a pool, outside. The swimmers in front of me actuall slowed me down. I caught my 20sec lead guy as well as 40 and 50 sec leaders.
Transition 1
  • 01m 25s
  • 26m 57s
  • 9 miles
  • 20.04 mile/hr

I started too fast and redlined. Then I eased off. I rode my rode bike because of the course (hills, multiple laps, crowd). I'm glad I did but it likely cost me some time. However, I think I would have been a littel nervous on my tri bike.
Transition 2
  • 00m

T2 mat was not working so it's included in the run.
  • 24m 14s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 49s  min/mile

Includes T2. I was having a rough spot and then I thought of my wife waiting for me and that helped me through as well as allowing me to increase my pace. The last half of the run I pushed hard.
Post race
Warm down:

Had to walk around for a bit.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I just don't do well in short events. Not bad but my running pace was not any better then in an Olympic race. However, to be fair, I'v e only rune two times in the last two weeks and that's in a pool to nurse a bad Achilles. The Achilles survived.

Event comments:

Very good race for beginners but expect a few hills on the ride.
