Pre-race routine:

Same old routine.....PB toast, water, gatorade
  • 11m 14s
  • 402 meters
  • 02m 47s / 100 meters

First of all, I accomplished what I wanted......I remained calm the entire swim. In regards to my time, I have NO idea what happened (other than I didn't swim fast). I did do a fair amount of the usual swimming around people, getting caught behind people, and trying to get out of the chaos. I also got cornered a bit at the buoy turn. I don't know that this was enough to slow me down this much.
What would you do differently?:

Better start position....out of the crowd
Transition 1
  • 01m 49s

Wetsuit strippers are the BEST
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 01m 2s
  • 18 miles
  • 17.70 mile/hr

I did decent for me on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 27s
  • 27m 48s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 58s  min/mile

I felt dead on the run. Mentally running straight makes me feel like it's so much further than it really is. Took in water, dumped a cup on my face, and took a wet towel both out and back in. That helps me a lot on hot days since I hate running in above 70 degrees.
What would you do differently?:

My pace was slower than I would have liked but I really didn't have anymore to give so I wouldn't change anything.
Post race
Warm down:

Fluids, food, relax :)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Myself? I could be 5lbs lighter, could have trained harder.....that's it. Not satisfied with all of my times but I finished after a 3 yr "break" and I feel like I left it all on the course.

Event comments:

Sean Ryan runs this race- what more can I say! Simply the best around!
