Pre-race routine:

last triathlon of the season, all i wanted to do was break 2:10...helped set up the race course.
Event warmup:

see above
  • 17m 23s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 04s / 100 yards

started off fine, jumped on quick feet. but was knocked off and lost the pack...i swam by myself for the rest of the swim. i kept second guessing myself as to how fast/slow i was swimming, turns out i was right on the $$
What would you do differently?:

it would have been nice to have some feet to draft the entire swim, but this worked out
Transition 1
  • 01m 35s

ugh, really stunk it up on this one. wasn't terrible i guess, but seconds count
  • 1h 07m 31s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 22.08 mile/hr

meh...at one point i was hoping for 105/106 range, but this was fine. got passed about 1/4 of the way by a AGer, but kept him in sight

really worked the downhills, and felt strong coming into T2
What would you do differently?:

maybe climb harder, but i was happy
Transition 2
  • 00m 26s

haha, hell yea, fastest in the race

helmet off, shoes on, GO
  • 41m 1s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 36s  min/mile

started the run in 6th or 7th...immediately passed a guy (in T2) then worked on reeling in the next two, one of which was the AGer who passed me on the bike. i have been feeling strong on the run recently, so i wanted to try and get a quick run (~40 or sub 40 would have been awesome)

as i came up on the 23 year old i could see he was struggling, and i just kicked it and flew past him, i ran about 6 20s on the way out and then was in no mans land...3rd place was too far in front and i had dropped everyone behind, so i just held on. i think that if i had another person near me i could have ran a faster return, but this was ok i guess
What would you do differently?:

get third, not fourth!
