Texarkana, Texas
United States
Team Texarkana
71F / 22C
Total Time = 1h 33m 8s
Overall Rank = 179/213
Age Group = F45-49
Age Group Rank = 6/6
Event warmup:

  • 15m 38s
  • 650 yards
  • 02m 25s / 100 yards

I didn't do badly, considering the chop. My paced was slower than last year.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 03m 1s

Very slow transition. Part of this was the larger field and my bike was in the absolute middle of the transition area. Also, I was just bloody tired after the swim and consequently fumble-fingered.
  • 42m 25s
  • 13 miles
  • 18.39 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 01m 28s

Not bad, but again, being in the middle of the transition area have me longer to run.
What would you do differently?:

I would say, "Get there earlier to get a better rack spot," but I know that won't happen. It's everything I can do to get my husband up and there an hour before start time. And as for me, I hate standing around for hours, waiting--makes me nervous. So honestly, since I'm just there to have fun, I would say: nothing.
  • 30m 58s
  • 3 miles
  • 10m 19s  min/mile

Slow off the bike, but picked up speed after mile 1. I ran the whole route, which is good for me, just stopping a but to drink some water.
What would you do differently?:

Do bricks.
