Total Time = 2h 15m 17s
Overall Rank = 109/
Age Group = M 20-24
Age Group Rank = 3/108
Pre-race routine:

Light stretching. Gatorade and fruit first thing in the morning. Then powerbar about hour and half hour before race time.
  • 22m 8s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 20s / 100 yards

Felt smooth and comfortable the whole way. Ran into and had to navigate through a lot of people from about 300M on to the finish. Slowed pace down a little but stayed strong.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe take more of an outside route to stay away from slower swimmers.
Transition 1
  • 03m 30s

Muddy which made conditions and footing difficult.
  • 1h 06m 25s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 22.45 mile/hr

Had a great feel the whole way through. Never felt like my legs were going to fall off. Held a solid pace and took in plenty of fluids.
What would you do differently?:

Take a gel with me for extra nutrition.
Transition 2
  • 01m 29s

Quick and smooth. No problems.
What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 47s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 44s  min/mile

Felt very strong and pushed myself. Ran a faster split than some of my 5k's in a sprint race. I just tried to race my race and play rabbit and catch the person in front of me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, executed perfectly.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

The rain! and the mass amount of athletes.

Event comments:

Way to many athletes allowed to race. The bike course was not wide enough and passing was rough, especially if you were a later wave. Well organized though.
