Pre-race routine:

This was my first tri and I wasn't sure what to eat. I had a couple pieces of toast 2 hours prior and then a Gu 15 minutes before getting into the water. I felt good and had lots of energy.
  • 06m 33s
  • 328 yards
  • 01m / 100 yards

Faster than in I had been in training. Would have been faster if not for a logjam of people stopping halfway through the swim.
Transition 1
  • 02m 51s

It was awful, I just could not get my shoes clipped into my bike. I lost 2 minutes because I hadn't practiced enough.
What would you do differently?:

I need to work on my transitions a lot more.
  • 47m 43s
  • 12 miles
  • 15.09 mile/hr

I was way too slow on the hills. I would pass people on the flat portions only to be passed by the same people on the hills.
What would you do differently?:

I need to incorporate more hills into my training.
Transition 2
  • 02m 17s

Better than T1, but could still be better.
  • 30m 41s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 52s  min/mile

Running is my weakest event. I wanted to average under a 10 min mile, so I was happy with that.

Event comments:

It was my first tri and I had a blast! Moving up to an Olympic for my next one and I learned so much doing this first. I'll change some of my training to get better for the next one.
