Pre-race routine:

Peanut butter sandwich at about 6 am
Left home with family at ^:30 as event is only 20 mins away
After arrival set up transition and hung out with friends and teammates from Circle City Multisport
Event warmup:

Even walk with some streching
  • 13m 41s
  • 547 yards
  • 02m 30s / 100 yards

Swim seems to be fading. Breathing never got on target and it effected the time badly. The best part was my tracking was dead on.
What would you do differently?:

Need to perfect my breathing during races. More time in pool
Transition 1
  • 02m 23s

Long walk from water to transition
  • 32m 25s
  • 10 miles
  • 18.51 mile/hr

After first mile ..lost rear tire pressure . Had to suffer through end of bike with about 70 lbs pressure.
Hills were horrible but really kept pedalling hard on downhills and turns.
I can still gain speed
What would you do differently?:

Carry Co2 although this was just a sprint.
I need more hill work
Transition 2
  • 02m 30s

Easy transition
  • 29m 35s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 52s  min/mile

Too slow but I did stick with my plan of 3 min easy 1 min fast as possible.

What would you do differently?:

Needed to take Advil before race as my back hurt really bad on run and caused me to slow too much
Post race
Warm down:

Found family and spoke with other teammates. At a half of banana and some sprite. Kids ate the wnderful pasta they were supplying

Event comments:

Tuxedo Brothers are one of the best at organzing running and other events in our area
