Pre-race routine:

whole wheat, peanut butter & banana sandwich, power bar, small G2, 20 oz of H2O. 40 min prior to race 24 Oz of Heed
Event warmup:

10 minute jog, 15 min stretch, 5 min run. I should have jumped on the bike but didn't. 10 minutes of swim & stretch.
  • 15m 58s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 57s / 100 yards

I didn't spot at all. swam wide at the 1st bouy, headed out to middle of lake and a spotter on a surf board stopped me and pointed the way. I was 50+ yards away from the swim course. I then again missed the bouy and had to correct to the finish. I think I left 2 minutes on the course.
What would you do differently?:

Look where the hell I was going. Oh, and not touch my goggles with greasy fingers. It messed up my vision.
Transition 1
  • 02m 7s

I dropped my goggles and swim hat on the run and had to stop and go back for them.
What would you do differently?:

More Vasoline on calves, ankles and heels.
  • 39m 51s
  • 14 miles
  • 21.08 mile/hr

Picked up the pace on the second lap that was good compared to the first lap.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure. If I went harder up front I might have blown myself up on the second lap and killed my already weak run.
Transition 2
  • 01m 14s

Had to drink more prior to the run.
What would you do differently?:

try running without socks.
  • 27m 41s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 54s  min/mile

I'm not Forest Gump! I can keep a pace but not push much above that pace without blowing up. My goal is to hit 26 min, then 25.
What would you do differently?:

run faster, DUH!
Post race
Warm down:

walk, water and stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not being a good runner

Event comments:

If it wasn't Mothers Day I would have my family with me because the lake is beautiful and they could have really enjoyed the event. Very, Very family friendly.
