Event warmup:

Not enough. Did a short run after setting up transition area before going down to swim start
  • 21m 46s
  • 656 yards
  • 03m 19s / 100 yards

This was my first triathlon and also my first OWS EVER so it was indeed a challenge. Happy that I finished and didn't drown!
What would you do differently?:

Work on more swimming especially OWS
Transition 1
  • 02m 13s

Had trouble getting into my socks with wet feet and then into shoes
What would you do differently?:

Try to see if I can ride barefooted
  • 42m 29s
  • 12.8 miles
  • 18.08 mile/hr

I picked up quite a few places here after my slow swim start. Did great on the downhills and flat sections only to suffer on the hills!
What would you do differently?:

Need to continue to work on climbing hills at a good cadence
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s

Did not get feet out of shoes before dismount line like I wanted to which made me slip and slide when trying to run up the hill into the bike rack area in my cleats!
What would you do differently?:

Work on dismount sequence ang getting out of bike shoes sooner
  • 32m 47s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 35s  min/mile

Run was'nt as fast as I had hoped for but one the bright side, I didn't walk once while others around me were!
What would you do differently?:

Work on getting my legs to turn over faster and not give in so easily.
Post race
Warm down:

Tried to find Gail and she wasn't at the finish line area. Got bike and gear and packed up van for trip home!

Event comments:

Great volunteers and people on the course were friendly. As this was my first triathlon, I don't have anything to compare it to but had a blast!
