Event warmup:

Swam roughly 100m

  • 500 meters

Last year: 15:39
Except for the start, I am very happy with my swim. I sighted enough to stay straight and was able to stay on some people's feet.
What would you do differently?:

Need to position myself at the start better. I had to navigate around a couple guys doing the breaststroke ~75m in.
Transition 1
  • 02m 9s

Two minutes faster than last year.
What would you do differently?:

Leave my shoes clipped in, but I don't feel risk is worth it because I'm nowhere near the podium.

This was my best bike leg of any race. Splits from my garmin:
time distance avg mph
00:14:34 5.00 20.6
00:14:36 5.00 20.5
00:10:09 3.71 21.9
What would you do differently?:

I was going to do a flying dismount. But, I hammered the last 2 miles and didn't feel comfortable enough on my legs to do it.
Transition 2
  • 01m 38s

Decent, except that I left my garmin on my bike so I had to turn around and go grab it
What would you do differently?:

Don't forget my watch
  • 33m 35s
  • 3.5 miles
  • 09m 36s  min/mile

Last year: 41:45
Huge improvement over last year, but still a long ways to go. TONS of people passed me, I lost a lot of places in my AG. But, overall I am happy with my sub 10min pace.
