Pre-race routine:

Got up at 6am, grabbed a coffee and a small bagel. Brought a protein bar to eat later before starting.
Event warmup:

None LOL
  • 06m 22s
  • 250 yards
  • 02m 33s / 100 yards

Came up on the person in front of me a few times but didn't pass.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe state a slightly faster swim time
Transition 1
  • 02m 29s

Could definitely have been faster but not bad for a first experience
What would you do differently?:

  • 45m 42s
  • 9 miles
  • 11.82 mile/hr

A few Hills which I definitely should have practiced more. Used my mountain bike, need more experience shifting effectively.
What would you do differently?:

Practice more hills. Will use a road bike next time! Learn to shift better
Transition 2
  • 01m 40s

Could have been a bit faster since I didn't change from bike shoes to running - but my legs did not want to move and my hips were very stiff coming off the bike
What would you do differently?:

Move faster, dismount faster
  • 25m 33s
  • 2 miles
  • 12m 47s  min/mile

Thought I would do better. My goal was to run the entire time but that didn't happen. Very stiff hips and legs coming off the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Run the entire time, practice more running
