Pre-race routine:

Spent the night in the 5th wheel at the campground on site. Woke up, took the border collies out to do their business. Had a Cliff Bar...ate a little later than I wanted. Went and set up transition 1 hour prior to start time. Stretched out...slow jog up/down boat ramp.
Event warmup:

Slow jog up/down boat ramp. Swam for a few minutes prior to start.
  • 15m 11s
  • 700 meters
  • 02m 10s / 100 meters

Good overall for first OWS. Drafted for a while, goggles fogged up which made for a tough time. Pretty pissed about that. Held back from really going at it because I wasn't sure of myself and the OWS.
What would you do differently?:

Do something to make sure goggles do not fog. Go at it much harder. I was hardly breathing - I could give it much more effort.
Transition 1
  • 03m 8s

150 yard uphill run up the boat ramp to transition area. Was happy with transition time. 32/197
What would you do differently?:

Move faster? Not much...
  • 34m 35s
  • 10.25 miles
  • 17.78 mile/hr

Good ride overall. I felt very comfortable on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Go harder, drink a little more. Push it up the hills a little harder.
Transition 2
  • 01m 32s

Took a few seconds longer than wanted to get on running shoes. Other than that I was happy with T2. 75/197
What would you do differently?:

Calm down and get running shoes on...
  • 30m 14s
  • 3.4 miles
  • 08m 53s  min/mile

Much improved over 1st TRI in June. Improved over 1 minute per mile. Very happy...know that I still have a lot of room to improve.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe go a little harder at it like the swim and bike.
Post race
Warm down:

Chilled out, went out to cheer Wendy and other competitors coming in. Ate a couple bananas, muffin, gatorade...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mental...I think I can give it a little more in all 3 sports.

Event comments:

Great race, location, etc. Had a great time and was very happy with my time.
