Pre-race routine:

Stayed up way to late and drank way to much. Was running late getting there. had time to set up in transition area and jump into the water.
  • 06m 54s
  • 200 yards
  • 03m 27s / 100 yards

As soon as the wave started I got a huge mouth full of water and started choking. I never seemed to catch my breath. The whole swim was terrible. Only good thing was I wasn't dfl!
What would you do differently?:

Keep my mouth shut :)
Transition 1
  • 01m 34s

I wore tri-shorts and just put on my socks running shoes and t-shirt. I had the fastest transition time in my AG
What would you do differently?:

avoid the rocks! ouch!
  • 25m 25s
  • 6.9 miles
  • 16.29 mile/hr

Due to running late and having a severe hang over I forgot my water bottle. Good thing I drank a good amount of the lake on my swim :/
What would you do differently?:

Remember my water bottle, eat breakfast and get a good nights sleep.
Transition 2
  • 25m 9s

I rode with my running shoes on so all I had to do was dismount, take off my helmet and rack my bike. Once again I had the fastest transition time of the AG.
What would you do differently?:

This transition went fairly well.
  • 11m 52s
  • 1.4 miles
  • 08m 29s  min/mile

Run was decent. My calf cramped up leaving the transition area. So I had to stretch briefly
What would you do differently?:

I did not drink any water throughout the whole race.

Event comments:

This was my first race! The event ran smoothly and they had lots of information for first timers. They offered lots of free swag, dri-fit shirt, swim cap,coupons and tons of samples. The awards ceremony was quick and to the point. The top two in the AG got a printed letter in a frame and overall winners got the letter and a jacket. Everyone received a participation medal. I had a great time and plan on doing this race again next year.
