What would you do differently?:

Start slower
Transition 1
  • 04m 53s

Need clip-ins. Stupid cage thingys were a serious pain when the start is up a hill.
What would you do differently?:

Need real pedals and cycling shoes.

Went too easy. Was worried I'd have no energy for the run. Being first triathlon, I just didn't know what to expect.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder.
Transition 2
  • 01m 43s

Bike racks were a mess. Had to push other bikes out of the way to make room.
What would you do differently?:

Just move faster
  • 27m 39s
  • 3.07 miles
  • 09m 01s  min/mile

I need to work on my run badly. I felt I was going doing ok, but apparently I was seriously slow. Had enough energy to keep running in the end, so I obviously didn't push enough.
What would you do differently?:

More training. Just didn't push hard enough.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Fear of the unknown. Only 1 month of "training" prior to the event. This was my 3rd time ever riding a road bike, which I bought 1 week prior to the event. Can't swim worth a damn.

Event comments:

Regardless of my performance, I had an absolute blast. Total official time was 1:17:05. Finished 67th out of 80 overall in my AG. Got a lot of room to improve.
