Age Group = clyd 0-39
Age Group Rank = 6/10
Pre-race routine:

peanut butter sandwich, jog, strech, look for a port-o-jon
  • 35m 7s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards

Felt good, after the first 500 I began seeing the previous wave's swim caps. Was consistant and smooth.
What would you do differently?:

could have pushed it a bit harder but was thinking of the bike and run.
Transition 1
  • 00m 46s

Great T1, 1st in my AG
What would you do differently?:

run harder learn how to jump on bike
  • 1h 21m 10s
  • 28.58 miles
  • 21.13 mile/hr

good bike, I jocked position with two others most of the race.
What would you do differently?:

go faster...
Transition 2
  • 01m 50s

Est. time it was merged with my run. As usual I am in and out quick
What would you do differently?:

I'm content
  • 1h 15m 30s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 12m 10s  min/mile

My run cost me. I walked appoximatelly 8 min costing me a good 4 min. Even with that my place would not have changed. I do not feel my swim or bike cost me. I Just need to lace up the running shoes more.
What would you do differently?:

Better run prep starting with run, run, and run some more...
Post race
Warm down:

water, light stretching, and waling off the rest of it.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

my gut, still need to loose 10-15 lb

Event comments:

As usual the swag is ok (shirt, socks, and advertisment), the event itself is great except I am not a fan of swimming in a boat harbor (I know no one purges the lav...), Post activities seemed to be week. Overall I was at the border of MOP and BOP and by the time I was ready for a mussel milk they were already shutting down.
