  • 07m 3s
  • 450 yards
  • 01m 34s / 100 yards

Swam it pretty easy. Had a goggle malfunction and swam the second half with one goggle full of water. Probably should have just stopped and fixed it. Easy swim and had plenty of room.
Transition 1
  • 01m 31s

Setup nicely. Very clean and lots of volunteers. No issues
  • 30m 37s
  • 11.18 miles
  • 21.99 mile/hr

Tried to take it smooth. Not a strong cyclist. Probably went a bit too hard so I couldn't really gun it on the run.
Transition 2
  • 00m 58s

Easy to navigate. Lots of volunteers. No issues
  • 23m 17s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 31s  min/mile

Felt really spent. Wanted to run sub 7 minute miles but didn't even come close to that. Got to get my biking better so I can push it on the run.

Event comments:

Great for beginners. Good for a first race of the year. Hope the city repaves one of the roads. I'll likely be back. Good people and good volunteers.
