Pre-race routine:

Banana and bagel at hotel before heading to the race site; typical routine of getting lost enroute (you would think I would learn by now)...
Event warmup:

  • 18m 19s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 26s / 100 meters

started more towards the back, but then got stuck in the pack - need to remember to start on the outside; googles fogged up about 1/2 way through; but was passing ppl in wave ahead of me
What would you do differently?:

goggle de-fogger; outside of pack
Transition 1
  • 02m 10s

my stuff got crowded out by someone else in the T1 area, so I have issues finding what had been laid out...
What would you do differently?:

get to the race a bit earlier to claim one of the end spots on the rack
  • 1h 07m 25s
  • 16 miles
  • 14.30 mile/hr

holy hills!
What would you do differently?:

not drop one of my water bottles mid-course....thankfully it was my water and not my gatorade; need to find some hills to train on
Transition 2
  • 02m 7s

see comments above about transition area and crowding...
What would you do differently?:

see above
  • 37m 9s
  • 5 kms
  • 07m 31s  min/km

walked too much at the beginning of the run...once I got going, I was fine, and the second half of the run, I ran the entire way...but my run was better than the last one in a sprint
What would you do differently?:

need to set distance goals of run/walk during the run - using road cones or something...might have helped
Post race
Warm down:

stretching, water, walking around

What limited your ability to perform faster:

didn't drink enough water prior to or during
