Pre-race routine:

PB Sandwich
Event warmup:

Not much. Trying to stay warm before the swim. High 50's outside temperature.
  • 07m 46s
  • 300 meters
  • 02m 35s / 100 meters

Good first 200 than the pool got cluttered. About 7 or 8 people in front of me so no point in passing just to get stuck behind the next person. Just took it easy the last 100
What would you do differently?:

Seed with a quicker estimated time
Transition 1
  • 02m 46s

Lost about 20 to 30 seconds trying to find my bike. My prescription goggles were fogging up real bad and I couldn't make out the rack numbers
What would you do differently?:

  • 31m 13s
  • 10 miles
  • 19.22 mile/hr

Very good bike. Never got passed. I passed about 10 to 15 other riders. Some of the riders were taking up too much road and I had to slow down a few times for them to move out of the way
What would you do differently?:

Train more on the bike. Didn't really do much bike again this year. Always surprises me that my bike is so much better than my runs even though I spend most of my time running
Transition 2
  • 01m 54s

  • 33m 20s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 45s  min/mile

Only water station was right out of transition though there were supposed to be water stations at mile 1 and 2. Signs a Mile 1 and 2 indicated water stations ahead but they never came. I would have brought water if I would have known that. Pace was right on par given the fact that I had 2 months downtime with an ankle injury and Strep Throat 3 weeks ago.
What would you do differently?:

Don't get injured or sick :)
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing really

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Injury during the year and strep throat 3 weeks before the race.

Event comments:

Very nice neighborhood race. Like the family friendly atmosphere.
