Pre-race routine:

My wife and son accompanied me to this race. There is not a race that is closer to my home. So, a quick 10-15 min drive and I was there.
Event warmup:

I took my 6 year old son for a little jog ~500 meters and did about 5-7 min of active stretch (ie high knees, butt kicks). Then I moved down to the water for about 200 yards of swimming and got ready to go
  • 11m 36s
  • 600 yards
  • 01m 56s / 100 yards

I swam way too easy. I set myself up for a decent bike but I could've gone faster.
Transition 1
  • 00m 47s

I was pretty fast in this transition. No complaints here.
  • 37m 54s
  • 15 miles
  • 23.75 mile/hr

I was passing people almost the entire bike. There were a couple local guys I know are good cyclists we kind of traded off passing each other after about half way. I should've pushed a little harder through the middle to try and catch the front group.
What would you do differently?:

push a little harder
Transition 2
  • 00m 52s

I almost dropped my bike, I almost dropped the rack. I really did not hit T2 smoothly.
  • 21m 50s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 17s  min/mile

This was definitely the best race run I have ever done. I'm not a great runner. However, my fastest open 5k training time is 21 min. So, I was able to run almost that fast after a 15mile bike on a really hot day. I'm pretty sure on a cool day I would've been fast that my open run time. running in the top 25% of all paticipants is really good for me. I definitely think my run training with BSC is helping big time!
Post race
Warm down:

lots and lots of fluids

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I didn't push myself very hard on the swim or the bike. I could've gone a little harder especially on the swim. However, I ran really well for me. Might have been the right effort.

Event comments:

This is a great race. Honestly, my age group is very very competitive locally. Seriously, 6 of the top 12 were all in my all in my age group and 5 of us were all within 2 min of each other! Great experience.
