Pre-race routine:

Got to the race way too early...set up my transition area, stretched, stretched some more, waited, stretched. Like I said got there way too early.
Event warmup:

  • 14m 19s
  • 437 yards
  • 03m 16s / 100 yards

Reef everywhere! On the way back we swam head-on with the women, that was confusing...Not too bad for me considering all my training for the swim has been in a pool.
What would you do differently?:

Get much more comfortable swimming in the ocean.
Transition 1
  • 02m 21s

I was really slow getting my feet clean and shoes on.
What would you do differently?:

Get shoes that I don't need socks to ride/run with. Forget about the shirt, just go...
  • 31m 15s
  • 10 miles
  • 19.20 mile/hr

A little bumpy ride, but nothing that any other road doesn't have.
What would you do differently?:

Ride harder, go faster...
Transition 2
  • 00m 33s

Great transition!!
What would you do differently?:

  • 28m 9s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 05s  min/mile

Slow at first, then settled into a rhythm, granted I have a slow rhythm, but I got there. Decent time for me. I practice paces were all around 9:30, so it was an improvement.
What would you do differently?:

Get a faster pace to settle into. Sprint it out towards the finish line allot earlier then I did this time.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around, a little stretching, snacks.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

I think that this was a great race for me as a beginner, first time triathlete. I had a lot of fun doing it. I have only been into running, swimming, and biking the last 3 months. I made a lifestyle change that I should have a long time ago.
