Age Group Rank = 21/37
Pre-race routine:

Normal pre-workout breakfast. Ate a Gold Bar about 1 hour before start. Didn't drink a lot of water, but a little with Bioplasma.
Event warmup:

Normal stretching.
  • 06m 25s
  • 300 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards

Lots of bumping. Staging of swimmers by their abilities was terrible. I ran over 3 and 4 ran over me. But we all made it.
Transition 1
  • 02m 3s

Had to run about 75yds to the transition area. Once there, all was great until I started running with bike. The mounting pedal kept turning. I'd fix it back and it would do it again. By the time I tried to mount it was not in the right spot. This cost me about 15 seconds.
  • 57m 11s
  • 16.5 miles
  • 17.31 mile/hr

I finished quicker than I'd practiced. Very difficult to do this course competitively on a mountain bike.
What would you do differently?:

Not use a mountain bike. Drink more.
Transition 2
  • 01m 7s

No problems whatsoever. I was positioned at the opposite end of bike entrance so I had a ways to run to my transition area. Nice thing was I was on the very end of the rack and close to the run exit.
What would you do differently?:

  • 29m 30s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 50s  min/mile

Slower than my practice time. Right leg hamstring muscle cramped badly about mile 2.5. Struggled for a bit but regained my speed and ran strong at the end. Grabbed a drink at each water station but still not enough liquids.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more on my bike ride to help prepare for my run cramping.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched my right leg hamstring.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Awesome Race! Will definitely do it again.
