Norfolk, Virginia
United States
78F / 26C
Total Time = 1h 33m 6s
Overall Rank = 234/518
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 26/40
Pre-race routine:

Got up at 3:30 had 2 packs of oatmeal/ coffee. Had coffee on the way. Ate banana and gel shortly before start.
  • 22m 18s
  • 1094 yards
  • 02m 02s / 100 yards

Chips were attached with neoprene straps and velcro. I felt the end of the strap flopping around almost immediately and was certain it would come off. I stopped at one point, reached back and contemplated snatching it off and holding it. I was hesitant to kick too hard for the remainder of the swim. It really threw off my rhythm..
What would you do differently?:

Make sure wet suit is over chip/ strap.
Transition 1
  • 02m 52s

Struggled somewhat getting clipped in. Not sure why.
What would you do differently?:

Pushed a little harder.
  • 38m 28s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 19.39 mile/hr

I thought my computer battery was dead, but the transmitter on the fork was too far from the wheel. Had no data during ride. Thought I was faster than I was.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure computer is working.
Transition 2
  • 01m 38s

Pretty satisfied.
  • 27m 47s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 56s  min/mile

Stomach was bothering me somewhat and heat was a factor.
What would you do differently?:

Note to self: Pre-race meal of Burrito Supreme bad idea. Stomach issues compounded by ingestion of bay water wreaked havoc. Did have a great burst last several hundred yards passing several runners who had just passed me. Not sure where it came from.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably need to train for speed.

Event comments:
