Pre-race routine:

Wake up, have coffee, gatorade, energy bar.
Find something pink to wear to match my bike (yea, odd, huh?)
Out the door by 4am.
Event warmup:

Just relaxing, talking with others
  • 36m 22s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 13s / 100 yards

Haven't been in the water for over two months, so I can't complain about my horrible swim time.
What would you do differently?:

Try to learn to like swimming. Not.
Transition 1
  • 02m 6s

I'm in no rush during the transitions.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe some day figure out pre-mounting my shoes...
  • 58m 45s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 25.38 mile/hr

Took it relatively easy on the bike, but still managed to play a lot of catch-up from my horrible swim.
What would you do differently?:

Push it a little harder next time.
Transition 2
  • 02m 21s

Again, I take it pretty easy during the transitions, I'm not out to win any awards...
What would you do differently?:

Find a pair of shoes that doesn't rip all of the skin off my feet when I'm not wearing socks.
  • 45m 57s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 24s  min/mile

Took it pretty easy on the run course, should have pushed a little bit.
Post race
Warm down:

None. Relaxed with a few beers, headed out..

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing at all.

Event comments:

I like the event, my second time doing it. I don't care for the hassle of having to check your bike in the day before. Lots of friendly people, fun overall.
