I never really got into a good rhythm
What would you do differently?:

warm-up longer before, start slower and worry more about my stroke instead of where everyone else is
Transition 1

struggled a little clipping in
What would you do differently?:

just practice this...I really don't practice transitions at all and I should

The 45 minutes on the side of the road hurt! Thank-you to the kind cyclist who helped me change my tire. Other than that I had a great ride...up until that point, I felt strong and was just building up speed for the second half of the ride.
What would you do differently?:

practice changing a flat, carry a spare tube, get new tires!
Transition 2
  • 01m 25s

I was still a little disheartened from the flat. Then Dexter asked me how my race was, and I had to tell him I wasn't finished yet...I could have had a full blown tea party with Dexter...I probablt would have run faster after...
  • 27m
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 43s  min/mile

I did try and keep my pace up, but I had a hard time. Seeing Mike midway through his last lap helped. I stopped and had another tea party at an aid station. Cheered on a few people, slowly drank a full cup of water, then decided I should probably get this race behind me...
What would you do differently?:

Try and do the whole race without a 45 minute break in the middle. Take a gel before the run.

Warm down:

Didn't really need too much of one

Event comments:

It took the guys on the motorcycle 30 minutes before they came and asked if I was injured. They drove by me twice before they stopped even though I was trying to wave them down (I knew I didn't have a tube and didn't really want to stop another racer for one). Good thing I wasn't hurt. The volunteer who did come with a van eventually was incredibly nice.
