Pre-race routine:

We were at the lake with friends so I had to pack up the family early and head to the race. I ate my normal setup.
Event warmup:

Had to rush to get Transition setup, chip, Bathroom before race meeting started.
  • 32m 15s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 58s / 100 yards

Swim felt really good. Kept moving at a constant pace. The swim must of been long cause my time was horrible.
What would you do differently?:

Swim more. Get more pool time in to get faster.
Transition 1
  • 02m 10s

Took my time here really. It was a long run from river to T1 up hill.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really. Maybe next time run faster.
  • 1h 09m 45s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 21.38 mile/hr

My goal here was to keep a solid pace, but NOT push the bike. I wanted to save my legs for the run. I was actually surprised on my time since I was taking it easy. I could of gone a lot faster, but didn't want to risk it.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 31s

Missed my row and had to back track a little.
What would you do differently?:

Pay attention. One day I would like to not have to put socks on for the run.
  • 52m 54s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 31s  min/mile

I was starting to hurt around mile 5. I was holding back the cramps, but It wasn't as bad as last time. I think if the hills were not there I would of been able to run full out.
What would you do differently?:

Need to Run more
Post race
Warm down:

Just drank lots of fluids. It was hot.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Running and cramps

Event comments:

Great Race. The area was outstanding. I would do this race again easily. Only issue was the water. They started packing up so fast that I needed more water.
