1st half I felt awful. Finally settled down in 2nd half. Time was better than the effort felt.
What would you do differently?:

Take it easy first half.
Transition 1
  • 03m 6s

Had new shoes on bike and had trouble getting in left shoe.
What would you do differently?:

  • 2h 59m 31s
  • 56 miles
  • 18.72 mile/hr

Slightly more effort/hr, but same time as training ride. Climbed very well. Rarely got passed on climbs. Passed a ton of people on the hills.
Transition 2
  • 01m 38s

Very quick
What would you do differently?:

Put on race belt as leaving transition area
  • 1h 56m 2s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 52s  min/mile

Wow, that is a tough run. The pit is just hateful. Dealt with cramping hamstring and quad at miles 1-3.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more on the bike and maybe take a couple Endurolytes if it is hot.
Post race
Warm down:

Found family and went down to lake and soaked legs for a bit. Helped a lot.

Event comments:

Wildflower (both races) is tough. Did Olympic last year and Long Course this year. Both tough in different ways.
