I thought I had a better swim but it might have been that I was in the novice age group. I lost my bearings only once.
What would you do differently?:

Get into a better group
Transition 1
  • 01m 39s

Definitely getting better at the transition. If I have one good note about this race it would have to be the transition.
What would you do differently?:

Run harder to get to the bike.

I am really disappointed with the bike. I thought I was going so much faster than I actually was. Again, I found out starting last is not all it is cracked up to be. I passed alot of people on the route and thought I had a good ride, but my time was not good at all. I took off my odimeter becuase I thought it would help but it hindered me.
What would you do differently?:

Start out with a better group.
Transition 2
  • 01m 42s

Sat down to put on the shoes.
What would you do differently?:

Taken the shoes out before the end of the bike. Would not have sat down to put on the shoes.
  • 26m 24s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 48s  min/mile

This is the worst run that I have ever had. Once I got off the bike I felt that I out of energy. My lungs were fine but my legs felt like rocks.
What would you do differently?:

Train more, so I don't embarrass myself infront of my triathlete friends.
Post race
Warm down:

Bitched and moaned about how shitty I did.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not training enough and add extra weight that is not needed.

Event comments:

Well run race and good crowd partipation. The only bad part about the race was me. haha. I really have not done that much training since I got back from europe (2 months ago) and I have put on some weight. I think this was the wake up call that I needed to start training more.
