70F / 21C
Total Time = 2h 43m 18s
Overall Rank = 99/366
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 11/43
Pre-race routine:

none-get up at 3:30 to drive up. Left at 4:15
  • 32m 19s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 58s / 100 yards

Really got hammered for the first half. No open water, goggles knocked off etc.
What would you do differently?:

I think my time would be better, and more energy reserved, to start back and/or outside. really focus on form and drafting. (not fighting it out and never recovering.
Transition 1
  • 03m 1s

really bad T1 as far as getting bike stuff on
What would you do differently?:

Get more organized and clip shoes onto pedals. Practice before Philly
  • 1h 18m 14s
  • 24 miles
  • 18.41 mile/hr

Really like this bike course. Lost lots of time following a few downhills in traffic. Easy 2-3 minutes if not more.
What would you do differently?:

Swim better to be a bit further up and clear more riders before fast descents.
Transition 2
  • 01m 32s

Odd long transition and I leave shoes on
What would you do differently?:

Just need to practice and organize much better. DONT SHOW UP LATE IDIOT!
  • 48m 12s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 07m 46s  min/mile

Not too bad for first of year. Really need to just clean up the whole race and then push this part. 7:46 was very (too) comfortable.
What would you do differently?:

Definitely go out on 7:25 or 7:30 and then push harder coming in.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Getting up at 3:30 and being a bit late arriving

Event comments:

Nice job by CGI as always in my opinion. I'll do this again and even pass up a race near my house for this one.
