I'm glad that I threw in the wetsuit at the last minute. Had a better than expected swim and came out almost 4 minutes faster than last year. I was suprised by how many people I passed. I also don't remember being passed.
What would you do differently?:

More practice couldn't hurt
Transition 1
  • 02m

Did well running into T1, but then walked to my rack. Had to stop pulling the wetsuit off my heels when I became dizzy and had to stand up for a few seconds.
  • 48m 59s
  • 14.2 miles
  • 17.39 mile/hr

Man did it feel like and show that I hadn't been on a bike, let alone my tri-bike, for about 6 weeks. I was hurting and the time shows it.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 02m 7s

Had some trouble getting my socks on. I had forgotten to roll them up prior to the race start.
What would you do differently?:

Run to the rack with the bike.
  • 30m 59s
  • 2.94 miles
  • 10m 32s  min/mile

I was suprised at the pace I was running when I wasn't fighting a tight back from the bike. The right side of my back kept tightening up on the run I would have to walk and stretch. Again running isn't my strong suit and mentally I'm not over the walking crutch. Good run overal considering the back.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of bike training.

Event comments:

Would be better with a 3 mile run as advertised, but that said I'll do it again next year.

Performance: Average
Course: Out and back. They claim 3 miles but in the 3 years I've done the race the course is the same but never 3 miles. Again I hate the course until it turns south on Hague. It is too narrow for out and back traffic.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
