Pre-race routine:

Up at 0330 with maybe 4-5 hours of sleep wearing recovery tights all night. PB & J bagel, shower, shave legs, chest, face, apply tattoos. 2 cups coffee. Dump. Pasta salad. Stretching.

Event warmup:

Walk to T-area, 20 minutes-ish. Dropped off gear bags. Dump and yoga while in line. Walk to beach starting area. Met with my Mom. Stretch and loud music.
  • 1h 15m 34s
  • 4224 yards
  • 01m 47s / 100 yards

No wetsuit, still beasted this. The first mile was crowded from the mass start, so I had little space to stretch out, but whatever. Eventually things improved and I could relax. My core temp was low after 1.5 miles.
What would you do differently?:

Wear a wetsuit?
Transition 1
  • 06m 46s

Um, took a minute getting dressed cuz I forgot my towel. I was cold from the swim.
What would you do differently?:

Remember a towel
  • 5h 45m 55s
  • 112 miles
  • 19.43 mile/hr

Got passed a lot early in the bike, but came back and took them all back and then some. Thought I took this out too hard, because goal pace was 6:30, but turned out 5:45 was just fine!
What would you do differently?:

Train more miles and hills on the bike to kick more butt!
Transition 2
  • 08m 42s

Meh. I took my time to make sure I was set for the run.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really.
  • 4h 03m 20s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 09m 17s  min/mile

Can't believe I maintained such a great pace after that hard of a bike. Couldnt have done it without the aid stations and people cheering me on though. Ice helped A LOT!
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Water. Stood in Lake Erie afterwards. Ate food. Slept.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A wetsuit for the swim? An aero helment for the bike? More run miles instead of being handicapped most of the year with plantar fasciitis?

Event comments:

Performance: Good
Wind: Some
Course: Flat with some mild hills. Most of the road was smooth, but there were about 15-20 miles with rough road. I never got passed going up any hills, and passed many, many people up hills. Training in the mountains of Alaska really helped me on these, and my recovery time at the top of hills was fast compared to other athletes who were pooped at the top. Now I know what to do for future training: even more hills!
