Pre-race routine:

Did something different this morning. Decided since I was so run down this week I would get up this morning and try to eat before the race. Which I have never down before. Ate 2 pieces of PB toast and gatorade at 5:30. Packed up and left for the race.
Event warmup:

Never really got a chance to warm up. Got in the pool about 5 minutes before start and did a few laps. Plus to get used to the water in the outdoor pool.
  • 06m 55s
  • 300 meters
  • 02m 19s / 100 meters

Time is so long because of the run through the kiddie pool. Jeff's is a more accurate swim time for just the laps:6:55
What would you do differently?:

I would warm up more. As I went in to swim they asked everyone to get out. I should have gotten there as early as Christian did!!!!!!!
Transition 1
  • 02m 9s

Considering how bad I knew my swim was I feel that this was especially good. I didn't let the poor performance affect the rest.
  • 46m 16s
  • 12 miles
  • 15.56 mile/hr

Starting my second loop Christian came up on my left and we chatted for a bit about the up coming hills. I kept him in site as I finished up my second lap.
What would you do differently?:

I feel I have finialy mastered the gears and shifting. This bike felt really good and I am happy with it. I was a bit worried about the dismount line, which was at the top of a short hill. I jumped off a bit early.
Transition 2
  • 01m 37s
  • 37m 34s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 12m 07s  min/mile

I tried the 5:1 Galloway method. Using my walks for the up hills. Which I feel really helped my run. I still need more work and will be focusing on this over the winter.
As I approach the finish line I see the kids and Jeff there. All three kids crossed the line with me.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Stetching and water waiting for Christian to run in!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I don't think being sick this week helped much. Though there was not much I could do about that.

Event comments:

Just want to Thank Jeff and the kids for their support. Also Shannon and Christians dad for all their cheering. Mark (wakeman) came out and cheered us on also which was awesome.

I have also used Jeff's times in this report. The times given on the website included T1 & T2. I don't need the extra time included just makes me look slower!

Course: Was a two lap course. The first part was a long gradual up hill. Once you got past that it was fairly easy. With a majority of it a snakey down hill. The worst part of this course was the last up hill. It was a long steep up hill. Had to come up out of my seat for it.

Age Group: 16/17
Overall: 305/332
Performance: Good
Course: The first mile was about 90% down hill and it was on pavement. With two slight inclines. Then there was a flat section that was on a dirt path. With a big loop at the end in the sun. You got to run the dirt path that was shaded twice. Then there comes the sucky part. All of that down hill turns to uphill. With at the very end right before you round the corner to the finish line there was a bridge that had big roots on an incline. After that you were on open field with the finish line right in front of you.
