Pre-race routine:

Got up and ate breakfast at the Comfort inn in Sturgeon Bay. Bagle with pnut butter and grabbed a banana to go. Loaded bike and headed out around 0605.
Event warmup:

Biked over to the park from the far end of the parking area to warm up my legs a bit. Got chip and body marking. Set up transition and walked through T1 and T2. Got wetsuit on and swam a little. Water was around 70deg and felt good. Found Karen and the Martens and waited for my wave to start.
  • 08m 4s
  • 402 meters
  • 01s / 100 meters

Good swim but not great.Probably would have been a little slower without the wetsuit.
What would you do differently?:

Practice with wetsuit
Transition 1
  • 01m 51s

Used wetsuit strippers to get the suit off my legs since I had never taken it off before. TriGlide worked well. Probably could have just taken it off myself faster.
What would you do differently?:

Practice T1.
  • 54m 11s
  • 18 miles
  • 19.93 mile/hr

Biking still seems to be my weakest area. I almost broke 20mph which is good for me but the course is pretty flat.
Transition 2
  • 00m 57s

Good T1 but I had a great rack position so that helped alot.
  • 24m 28s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 53s  min/mile

Good run on a very flat course. Got a side stitch right at the half way point that slowed me down a little. It subsided a little and a couple of guys came by that I could pace with. Finished with a sprint against another competitor and won.
Post race
Warm down:

Had an Amberbock and a pork BBQ sandwich. delicious.

Event comments:

Very well run race. Beautiful venue. I stayed with friends in their bayside cottage for the next week and got to enjoy more swimming, biking, and running in Door County. I will be back if possible.
