Pre-race routine:

Camped out @race site the night before. Didn't sleep well and woke up late. Ate a banana and a 1/2 bagel.
Event warmup:

Loosened up on the bike, got in the right gear and racked it. Walked the 1/2+ mile walk to the swim start since the water was low.
  • 35m 20s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 09s / 100 yards

Need to get some new goggles, couldn't see the buoy's. Water was clean, clear, and very comfortable. Got in a good rhythm. Was hoping to swim 32-33 min.
What would you do differently?:

Swim faster,...what else!
Transition 1
  • 06m 31s

Stuck in wetsuit...again!! 1/2 mile+ run from the swim finish to TA. Made up some time during that run!
What would you do differently?:

Get the darn wetsuit off quickly!
  • 1h 04m 27s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 23.13 mile/hr

48mph! Went out just a fraction too hard and had to recover somewhat just before the last hill. Raced along with Andrew,..had someone to push me.
What would you do differently?:

Not drop my gels. Maybe I would have had a bit more energy.
Transition 2
  • 01m 7s

Good ta, had to put socks on, slowed me.
  • 39m 27s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 21s  min/mile

Didn't drink any (all shaded course) b/c they had heed. Started out steady and got into a rhythm and turned it on at the end. Probably b/c I was being chased by the 3rd place female!! First 10K since last december.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

wetsuit, swimming, socks, dropped my gels.

Event comments:

Great venue, clean lake, perfect temperature. Fast bike course. I will definately do this one again!!
