Pre-race routine:

Got up, fixed scrambled eggs, bagel, coffee. Left the house at 5:45AM. Did not anticipate all of the road closures.
Event warmup:

got to race with 40 mins to spare. checked in, set up transition in record time. Threw on my wetsuit, time to go!
  • 14m 14s
  • 600 yards
  • 02m 22s / 100 yards

I got caught up in all sorts of congestion at the start of the swim. It was horrible. Caused me to panic. breast stroke, back stroke. Finally I said, knock it off. I nearly went to the kayak and said screw it. But I decided to gut it out and just swim.
What would you do differently?:

I don't know. I got in the water and warmed up. I felt good in the water for that. Who knows why this shit happens to me? Once I started swimming though, I was doing just fine.
Transition 1
  • 02m

Who knows what my time really was. The timing system was broken and we all got 2 mins. I think I was slow in T1..
What would you do differently?:

  • 44m 2s
  • 14 miles
  • 19.08 mile/hr
What would you do differently?:

I hammered the bike. Rode like I stole my bike! I will only get better the more I work the bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 25s
What would you do differently?:

keep shoes on bike and come out of shoes while still on bike.
  • 26m 34s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 52s  min/mile

My legs were toast from the bike. I just hung on for dear life. I walked through the water stop and walked with Gary for a few seconds, then I ran it in.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing. It is what it is. Every race is a unique experience- I gave it my all and that is all I can ask.

Event comments:

The timing issue stunk. I wish I would have put my Garmin on. Oh well. I had my stop watch and my powertap so I was able to figure out what my times were. What's listed here is what was on the website. As usual, great race, great friends at race. Always enjoy doing it.
