Pre-race routine:

Woke up, ate 2 pop tarts, I was staying in a Hotel and the breakfast wasn't open before I had to leave.
Event warmup:

Swam 2-300 yards.
  • 14m 4s
  • 880 yards
  • 01m 36s / 100 yards

Good swim, water temp was just right. The lake was glass calm. No drafting, I just went for it and ended up with a PR.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 00m 38s

Transition was pretty good. Transition area not so good, it needed to be swept more, there were little pebbles all over, but no big deal.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, my bike was right near the transition exit.
  • 49m 9s
  • 18.6 miles
  • 22.71 mile/hr

Good strong bike ride. First race on the new Lucero, upgraded from an alum.Kilo, man that bike is fast. There was one crappy corner right after the turn around, but from what I can understand they had to change the course this year do to a bridge being out.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

I was a little slow getting on the running shoes, but did not loose much time.
What would you do differently?:

  • 24m 52s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m  min/mile

Very hot! I have not been running much due to the inside of my right knee hurting. Over all a good course though.
What would you do differently?:

Run more!
Post race
Warm down:

Talked to a few people I know and watched part of the kids race.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough run training.

Event comments:

Nice race, not very big but just big enough. The bike course had a few hills but nothing to hard for a flat lander like me. I was not sure if I was going to do this race but now I am glad I did. The course is just right and in a nice quiet location. Friendly volunteers and great post race BBQ! I will be back next year for sure!
