Pre-race routine:

usual pre-race, minus the expected BM...
Event warmup:

  • 35m 15s
  • 1094 yards
  • 03m 13s / 100 yards

After reaching the first buoy and turning left, my goggles were completely fogged over. I could not see anything. Yelled for 'yakker who said I was swimming straight, keep it up. I did that and eventually got to the shoreline. I'm not a swimmer but the water was so pleasant, it did not suck.
What would you do differently?:

practice swimming till I found goggles that don't fog up
Transition 1
  • 00m
What would you do differently?:

wish there were no stickerburs to adhere to bare feet coming out of swim
  • 1h 25m 12s
  • 23 miles
  • 16.20 mile/hr

there were some significant patches of rough chip-seal. They were short lived though. I didn't push it enough on the bike because I didn't want to kill myself for the run. Next year, I'll kick it up a notch. Get to cloverleaf in 20 min rather than 23.........
What would you do differently?:

push harder at the beginning to get to cloverleaf in 20 min
Transition 2
  • 01m 34s

T2 went as expected. Did not hurry, made sure all rules were followed
What would you do differently?:

maybe shove feet into shoes a little faster?
  • 53m 47s
  • 4.4 miles
  • 12m 13s  min/mile

ha. Keeping cool. In Central Texas in Mid-July...... that's funny.
What would you do differently?:

I don't think I'd change a thing. Run went very very well. Maybe I'd yell at the people a few yards ahead of me who cut the course on the way back..............
Post race
Warm down:

Cheered for Carlene

What limited your ability to perform faster:

my suckage at swimming

Event comments:

This is my hands-down favorite venue. And I got 2nd place in Athena category.
