Pre-race routine:

Ate some turkey slices and a Odwalla bar. Also ate some Luna Moons closer to race start.
Event warmup:

Jogged/Walked about a mile and included a few 10 second sprints.
  • 00m
  • 437 yards
  • / 100 yards

Really bummed that swim was cancelled since that was the only reason I had signed up for this event. But I understand, it was too dangerous to swim.
Transition 1
  • 01m 27s

Felt slow but one of my faster Ts.
  • 45m 1s
  • 14 miles
  • 18.66 mile/hr

Bike computer was functioning and I didn't set up my Garmin properly with the multi-sport function. So I had no idea what I was doing on the bike. Slower than I wanted.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure my equipment is setup properly.
Transition 2
  • 01m 4s

Not bad - ran in then tried to focus on catching my breath before the run.
What would you do differently?:

  • 27m 44s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 57s  min/mile

Tried to keep pushing myself and run as fast as I could. I passsed 2 people in my age group and made sure that I stayed ahead of them. Thought my pace was faster based on my watch but I guess not.
What would you do differently?:

Just need to train to be faster to do anything differently.
Post race
Warm down:

walked around

Event comments:

This whole week has been a mess. Kids sick, work crazy, husband nursing serious road rash and my entire reason of practicing an open water swim canned by a tropical storm. Plus a fun family weeking of camping at the park was cancelled b/c of the weather. So I was pretty much in a funk this morning. But I'm happy to be home safe and sound and I'm done whinning! Next race: Baltimore Marathon :-)
