Ate a cinnamon raisin bagel and had a protien shake. Tried to drink as much water as possible.
I just got in the water a little bit before the race start.
02m 42s / 100 yards
My swim was the worst part of this race. I got hit the entire way. There was a girl that I kept trying to get away from but I think she was following me. She was doing some sort of frog kick and every time that foot went out, it hit me somewhere. I also got punched in the head a few times, once really hard by a novice from the wave behind me. The start of the race was the worst. I couldn't get my breathing down and almost panicked. Once I got about 200 meters out, I calmed down and just plodded and fought along.
I had a great spot in the transition area. Though I still had to run the length of the transition area to get to it..but it was right next to the bike exit. At least I didn't have to run in my bike cleats.
What would you do differently?:
I felt pretty good about the bike. I probably could have done better, but it is such an improvement since the beginning of the season.
What would you do differently?:
I have been having problems with blisters on my feet so I wore some old running shoes that I thought wouldn't bother me. This was a good choice. I also decided to wear socks which I think helped as well but took time in the transition. My feet were still wet so getting the socks on was tough, but not so much so that I regret it.
09m 34s min/mile
This is the best run I have done in a triathlon so far. I decided that I didn't want to walk
(I did walk as I was drinking through two water stations, but I started running almost immediately after two or three sips of water
). It was really hilly but I kept telling myself that I could do it. I am pleased with the run - I know I can do it now and will go faster from now on.
Ate bagel and 2
) bananas. Walked around and talked to other competitors.
It took a while for the results to be posted and then they weren't divided into categories. I guess since I have been to 3 other of the tri the parks races and they have had results posted almost immediately after I cross the finish line, I was a bit spoiled. This was a pretty big race, over 500 competitors. I still got 1st in the Master's athena

This was an out and back course. There was a long, not too steep but winding hill as you come out of the park. There were other rolling hills along the way.

The course started out running around grassy areas between parking lots and roads then went to a road and did some loops around some camping areas. It was pretty hilly.
