Pre-race routine:

Drove up from Lamoka Lake. Set-up the transition in the pouring rain. Hung out with Family and tri-club racers and volunteers.
Event warmup:

nothing really
  • 17m 13s
  • 820 yards
  • 02m 06s / 100 yards

What a lousy swim! It was clear that I haven't been swimming enough. I just couldn't get into a groove. My arm seemed exhausted from the start.
What would you do differently?:

I need more swim yards. I also got with a slow group and sort of paced with them.
Transition 1
  • 01m 44s

This was the 1st time I tried racing with a tri-shirt under my wetsuit. This was definately the way to go (thanks for loaning me a shirt Bob S.) I also hooked my glasses into my helmet. That worked well also (thanks for the tip Matt G.)
What would you do differently?:

Next place for gains is probably switching to shoes tri style bike shoes. Mine are regular bike shoes with a buckle and velcro straps.
  • 37m 52s
  • 13.67 miles
  • 21.66 mile/hr

I was so pissed with my swim I decided to really push the bike. I wanted to see what it would be like to run after really pushing the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Need to pay attention to hydration.
Transition 2
  • 00m 58s
  • 23m 8s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 26s  min/mile

I have been running with a Garmin in training so I didn't have a good feel for my pace. I felt like I was crawling but overall I was happy with my time.
What would you do differently?:

Push for the finish (I missed 3rd for my AG by 10 seconds.
Post race
Warm down:

walked back to where the tri-club was volunteering and helped hand out water to the rest of the racers.

Event comments:

Road was better than what I thought but still needs work.
