Pre-race routine:

Snoozed a bit after the alarm went off. Up and out after packing everything in the closet - who knows what to wear on cold rainy days. We swung thru DD & Starbucks for coffee and a bagel.
Event warmup:

Met up with the Zoom Multisport team. Set up transition; went for a quick jog to the port-o-potty with no line! (it's something i remembered from the last time i did this race) Tried to stay warm and dry.

Transition 1

  • 11 miles
  • 14.89 mile/hr

Gave it all on the run; had a lot of trouble getting comfortable on the bike. I'm sure it had a lot to do with the weather and road conditions. I had a few slippery back wheel moments and slowed WAY down for cornering. I really had hope the first race on the new bike would have been faster but I had fun.
Transition 2
  • 01m 54s
  • 19m 40s
  • 2 miles
  • 09m 50s  min/mile

My toes went numb and frozen on the bike - took until the last 1/2 mile to feel them. Took a long time to feel comfortable and by that time it was over!!
It's great to finish near the end - lots of paparazzi and fans to cheer you across the finish line :) xoxo
Post race
Warm down:

Mix1 protein shake and rolled the stick over my legs and butt - both were pretty spent. Hung out with the other Zoom teammates and celebrated Whitney's AG win.

Event comments:

The one thing I noticed is that there were no mile markers - just a funny difference from the FIRM Racing team.
