Pre-race routine:

Drank the Hammer stuff, took a packet of GU, stopped by Dunkin Donuts for a plain bagel
Event warmup:

Lots of stretching, some open water swim
  • 08m 20s
  • 547 yards
  • 04s / 100 yards

People in front kept complaining I was swiping their feet. Found my own space to get into rhythm.
What would you do differently?:

Start closer to the front
Transition 1

What would you do differently?:

Have to learn the barefoot run through transition and mount bike with shoes attached trick

  • 11.5 miles
  • 20.35 mile/hr

Course was flat and fast. Shouldn't have braked on corner heading onto Conover road. Got smoked by some aero helmet dude. Otherwise, did well - passed a lot of folks on Old Trenton.
What would you do differently?:

Should've emptied the tank once I hit the turn back to the park
Transition 2
  • 01m 39s

Kept sliding on pavement with bike shows on.
What would you do differently?:

Learn the flying dismount.

Overall felt like I could've pushed harder again, but didn't want to risk the pulled hamstring from a softball game played earlier in the week.
What would you do differently?:

Not play softball two days before the race.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Pulled hamstring
