5150 Triathlon Series
78F / 26C
Total Time = 3h 59m 56s
Overall Rank = 276/280
Age Group = Para
Age Group Rank = 1/1
  • 47m 34s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 54s / 100 yards

Got hammered from swimmers passing me after the buoy.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 05m 47s

I was near the bike in and out so not a lot of running needed. The time was long due to the VERY LONG run from the water to enter the back of transition.
  • 1h 37m 32s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 15.29 mile/hr

It was a great ride with some challenging hills, but nothing I could not handle.
Transition 2
  • 04m 59s

Again, a long run out of transition.
  • 1h 24m 6s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 13m 32s  min/mile

Probably, my best run ever. Lots of support and plenty of fans.

Event comments:

The only criticism was the lack of post race food.
