Age Group Rank = 59/65
Pre-race routine:

Got down to Hyannis on Friday and went to the beach to get race pack. A lot of people were swimming the course. We got there later than I wanted to and I didn't go in, but I should have. We went to dinner with Rob (rcberto) and his wife. Getting the kids to bed was easier than I thought, which allowed to be in bed early.
Event warmup:

Rob picked me up and set up transition. Pretty uneventful, except for the fact that I forgot my Garmin in the hotel room. Probably could have used it on the run.
  • 09m 13s
  • 450 yards
  • 02m 03s / 100 yards

I am very happy with my swim. I shaved 5 mins off my last race. Water was warm, I stayed to the outside so I could site off the people to my right. Went off track a bit and got hit a couple of times, but overall good swim.
What would you do differently?:

Try and do the course before the race.
Transition 1
  • 00m

I thought I did better than last race. Had a race belt and wore tri suit under wetsuit.
What would you do differently?:

  • 43m 36s
  • 10 miles
  • 13.76 mile/hr

I did much better than last race. I learned to use my big ring since then and it helped a lot. Lots of people past me, but I passed some people this time. There were a couple of stretches where we had to go in a single line, and some of the "pros" were yelling to hurry up. With all due respect with the folks who are actually trying to place, but cut the sh*t. It didn't bother me, but there we a lot of first timers there and I could see how riding up hill in a single file line around a corner could be stressful enough without someone yelling at them to move it. If you don't like being involved in a race with newbies, then don't race. Go start a race where only experience veterans can race. Rant off.
What would you do differently?:

Use an aero bottle. Clipless pedals go on Monday.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Since was already wearing my running shoes, this had to be under a minute. I just racked my bike and took my helmet off. This makes my running time even worse than it looks.
What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 32s
  • 3.5 miles
  • 11m 52s  min/mile

This was horrible. It took me a 1.5 miles to get my legs under me. I had to pee, and stomach was sloshing around. I walked most of the first 2 miles. Last half was good. I ran it all and felt good. I little disappointed because I could have gone under 1:30 overall if I just HTFU.
What would you do differently?:

Lots of bike/run bricks.
Post race
Warm down:

Packed up and chatted with Rob and Andy(non BT) and actually ran into a girl that I went to high school with. She was racked right next to me. Small world. The kids seem to have no interest in the race, so I had to go find them on the beach somewhere. I would have like to stay for the awards, but the little one was ready for a nap. So wasn't daddy.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The run.

Event comments:

This race was great. The weather was great, the volunteers were every where, the course was perfect. I will definitely do this again.

This is my first race.

Any suggestions on what to eat and drink for breakfast before the race?

Should I just go with a Dunkin Turbo and then hit the water?
