Pre-race routine:

Normal breakfast, english muffin and banana. Ate a PB sandwich once I got checked in an everything ready in transition.
Event warmup:

Did some light jogging and strides, along with some stretching.
  • 21m 28s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 10s  min/mile

Strong first couple miles. Ran out of gas a little on the last mile. Still happy with my results
What would you do differently?:

I was very happy with this portion of the race. I ran a good strong pace, but didn't kill myself for the rest of the race
Transition 1
  • 01m 12s

I was very happy with my transition, especially since it was my first ever run to bike transition.
What would you do differently?:

I accidentally ran on the wrong side of my bike, so I had to switch sides in order to jump on (I can only jump on running when I am on the left).
  • 1h 04m 43s
  • 34 kms
  • 31.52 km/hr

Pretty flat ride with just one small hill. The road is very bumpy due to cracks. Lost one of my water bottles on the first lap. There was a slight headwind for about 2 miles of the course.
What would you do differently?:

I think I could have ridden a little harder. At times I kind of checked out mentally.
Transition 2
  • 00m 54s

I was very happy with this transition. I had to take an extra second to put my beanie back on as it was still pretty chilly out.
  • 25m 27s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 29s  min/mile

I had some major cramping issues on run two. I knew I was tight getting off the back so I tried to push through some of the minor cramps. I had a major right hamstring cramp right before mile 1 and had to stop and stretch it. Felt pretty good after that, then right after mile 2 the left hamstring cramped hard and I had to stretch it. I figured I lost about 2 minutes to to stretching out cramps.
What would you do differently?:

I need to take some salt tablets during the ride to avoid cramping
Post race
Warm down:

some light jogging and stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Cramping on run 2.

Event comments:

Good race, well ran. Will be doing the other 2 events in the duathlon series.
