Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 3:30 and never fell back asleep. Got up at 5:15. Ate peanut butter toast, drank some water, got dressed and left for race at 6am.
Event warmup:

Didn't really warmup. This was my first triathlon and I pretty much hung around family and observed participants who looked experienced. I did go in the water a bit before the race to find out how cold it was.
  • 08m 12s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 52s / 100 yards

The bay was choppy so the first 100 meters or so I wasn't even putting my head under the water. I wasn't used to the waves so I was figuring out what to do, I guess.
What would you do differently?:

Swim the way I know I can swim from the start.
Transition 1
  • 02m 21s

Wetsuit got stuck once it got to my ankles. But I got it off without too much wasted time.
What would you do differently?:

Roll wetsuit down instead of pulling straight down.
  • 39m
  • 11 miles
  • 16.92 mile/hr

For me I did really good. I was pushing myself to keep good pace. I hoped to average 16mph and I did! I need to improve on the bike but I'm happy with this time right now. I did not drink anything because I didn't want to slow down.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more.
Transition 2
  • 01m 7s

I had a faster transition than I thought. I had to re-do my ponytail to get my hat on right. Good transition.
What would you do differently?:

  • 25m 20s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 09s  min/mile

I did better than I expected. I hoped to keep a 9min/mile pace and I did better! I had a bit of a side ache but was able to get through it. It felt like forever until mile 1 came. The finish was kind of down hill which was awesome.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

After I crossed the finish line I got a bottle of water, drank cup of gaterade and ate some watermelon. Then I got my medal, handed in my timing chip and met up with my awesome family.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Side ache maybe.

Event comments:

Great race, I will be back next year!
