Overall Rank = 37/
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 2/4
Pre-race routine:

Normal breakfast and a cup of coffee for the hour drive to San Dimas. Check in was quick and organized, plenty of spaces in the T-area. Nothing significant
Event warmup:

Swam for about 10 mins
  • 06m 18s
  • 328 yards
  • 01m 55s / 100 yards

Good swim, no problems navigating, nor did I get in the pack and get swam over. I stayed out of the mix to the left and had a pretty good line to the buoy.
Transition 1
  • 03m 27s

Took my time getting my wetsuit off. Probably could have sped things up a bit.
  • 31m 16s
  • 8.39 miles
  • 16.10 mile/hr

No issues with the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Need to add more hill training. Living near the beach where it's flat doesn't help.
Transition 2
  • 01m 6s
  • 29m 12s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 44s  min/mile

No problems with the run
What would you do differently?:

As with my bike, I need to train more on the hills.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk and stretching. Sports drink and sandwich worked.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

They've been doing this race for a long time and have it down to a science. The only negative is the start for the short course where we had to wait for a long time to get a few lifeguards in place. This happens all the time, so I would think they could do something to fix that? Other than that, I love the course, the volunteers, etc.
