Pre-race routine:

A couple slices of cold pizza and a glass of apple juice to clear the cobwebs. Banana after setting up transition.

Walked around transition. Talked to a bunch of people. Walked the first 1/4 mile of the run w/ Evondo and scoped out the swim start.
Event warmup:

They moved the swim start to the opposite side of the lake. Didn't feel like walking around so I just swam across with Houstonrider.
  • 12m 11s
  • 482 meters
  • 02m 32s / 100 meters

minimal swim training the past 5 weeks showed. started inside front. my only swim goal was to get hit and enjoy it. it got physical and man was it fun! good stuff! siting was very good as i hugged the guide buoy line the entire time.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 49s

good transition. but could be faster. of course i was checking out the bikes to see who was still in the water.
What would you do differently?:

no socks.
  • 46m 21s
  • 14 miles
  • 18.12 mile/hr

stayed out on the bars the entire time. good. not liking the cobb vflow saddle.

i had a hard time finding a comfortable gear.

dead dog on side road. very sad.

two guys passed me drafting. for some reason this tweaked me. i let them know what i thought of it and the guy behind dropped back.
What would you do differently?:

ride more.
Transition 2
  • 00m 59s

best yet
What would you do differently?:

  • 33m 51s
  • 3.28 miles
  • 10m 19s  min/mile

this is where doing not much since bslt showed. i had nothing here. never walked but very slow. it was weird because i wanted to go a little faster but my legs dictated the pace. bastards!
What would you do differently?:

run more.
Post race
Warm down:

forgot jelly belly's (shame on me) so just drank beer. Awesome group of BT er's and HRTC.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

i haven't done squat since bslt.

Event comments:


*sarc* Warm beer is warm. It only gets cold if you put ice on it. You need to ice beer before the race starts in order for it to be cold when we finish. If you put ice on the beer after the race some people might not be happy.

edit. thankfully, one smart Marine and his wife volunteered and brought a cooler full of ICE COLD BEER!
