Pre-race routine:

Drove over early, about an hour from home. Got racked next to many very expensive bikes, wondered if I belonged there.
Event warmup:

Ran the last part which is on a trail to know what I was getting into, short bike and swim. Chilly and chop but decided on no wetsuit.
  • 07m 4s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 37s / 100 yards

A bit rough out there but I too did Highcliff with its waves so not too bad. On the bike I noticed a green crotch. After the race I lifted my tri top and was caked with algie from the swim.
I was in the first wave so didn't have to contend with any traffic. Felt I could have done better but am training for my first full and forgot how to sprint.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder
Transition 1
  • 00m 42s

no surprises, didn't wear wetsuit so saved time there
What would you do differently?:

  • 47m 12s
  • 16 miles
  • 20.34 mile/hr

It was windy but almost all cross winds except a few miles so didn't seem to be much of a factor. Durring the first couple of miles the studs flew by as expected. I just stay out of the way and hope to catch a few on the run. Overall I enjoyed the ride.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

First time here and although I ran the run out during warm-ups I still started running the wrong way.
What would you do differently?:

Wake up
  • 21m 55s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 19s  min/mile

Tried to push and did end up catching 2 runners in the trees. Overall a nice run with a couple of rollers to make it interesting. A group of kids at about the half way point giving high fives gave me a little boost.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing was never very fast so I was happy with time.
Post race
Warm down:

Had some food, checked results and saw I didn't need to stay for awards and had a birthday party to get to so left early.

Event comments:

First time here, small race but lot of good athletes. I liked it so will plan on next year.
