Well i stayed on course better than my previous races....But i accidentially went at the wrong bouy on the last turn. So i probably added about 2-3 minutes because of that.
What would you do differently?:

Navigate a little better
Transition 1
  • 04m 6s

Took my time to make sure i had everything i needed for the bike.
  • 3h 10m 55s
  • 56 miles
  • 17.60 mile/hr

Good course with PLENTY of volunteers....All intersections were blocked and well maned.
What would you do differently?:

not much, i had a good bike leg.
Transition 2
  • 05m 54s

Decent transition, again i took my time and ate a little bit. I even went to the bathroom.
  • 2h 38m 8s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 12m 04s  min/mile

Well i felt good the first 6.6 miles which i ran in 1:07:00. It wasn't fast, but it was a good pace for my first HIM. I was probably running 9min/mile pace with a minute at each aid station. Then I just ran out of endurance. I think my food intake was good and i had energy, but my legs were just at the end of their endurance. So the last about 5 miles there was quite a bit of walking which is why the last 6.6 took me about 1:32:00. It's alright though, it was my first year of tri's so i'm happy to make it to a HIM in my first year.
What would you do differently?:

Build my base this winter so i can smoke the run in March at Cali 70.3
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

No enough base and it was really hot!!

Event comments:

Very well organized with plenty of aid stations and tons of volunteers.
