Total Time = 1h 10m 6s
Overall Rank = 85/527
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 8/27
Pre-race routine:

Some kind of breakfest bar when I woke up and a gu about 1/2 hour before the race.
Event warmup:

  • 07m 28s
  • 402 meters
  • 01m 52s / 100 meters

I still didn't swim the whole time or feel very comfortable in the water. Mainly because there were actual waves. The Green Bay has much more choppy seas than any other lake I swam in. So that was a bit interesting.
What would you do differently?:

I tried to keep up w/ some guy and draft him, but he ended up being too fast. I suppose I would just relax and take it easier. Especially if I am to do .9 mile in 2 weeks!!!
Transition 1
  • 01m 42s

I'm pretty decent at the 1st transition.
What would you do differently?:

  • 34m 30s
  • 11 miles
  • 19.13 mile/hr

Reason I went hard is that my buddy did the tri w/ me and he's simply better than me. So I managed to come out of the swim and get out of T1 before him and I wanted to keep the lead until he passed me on the run. However, he caught up to me on the bike and we finished that together, but he blasted me on the run. Boo.
What would you do differently?:

Race my race. Usually that isn't a problem because we're not in the same wave...
Transition 2
  • 01m 10s

What would you do differently?:

  • 25m 14s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 08s  min/mile

Run stunk. I felt like I had to crap and I was wore out from my bike. That sucked.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Need to do more short bikes to build up leg strength so that I can hammer the bike and do well on the run.

Event comments:

This race had free beer and BBQ pork sandwiches afterwards!!! I'm down with that!!!
