Total Time = 2h 30m 17s
Overall Rank = 13/228
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 4/39
Pre-race routine:

Drove to the race, set up transition, caught up with some friends. just the normal pre-race thing
Event warmup:

swam maybe 100m
  • 26m 34s
  • 1207 meters
  • 02m 12s / 100 meters

Felt great on the swim other than taking a foot to my face in the first 50m. Racing in the one piece is definitely faster. I was in the pack for most of the swim leg.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 1h 13m 14s
  • 14 miles
  • 11.47 mile/hr

Felt good the whole time, never went into the pain cave, just stayed steady throughout the course. Ran into lapped traffic at the end of the second lap.
What would you do differently?:

ride a bit faster
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 50m 29s
  • 5 miles
  • 10m 06s  min/mile

Shuffled along didn't have any cramps and other than a bloated feeling for the first few miles felt good. Probably could've gone a little harder, but i was enjoying the run with John and didn't want to go too deep and cramp.
What would you do differently?:

push a little harder on the flat/fast sections.

Event comments:

Great race. Only suggestion is to figure out a way to open up the trail as lapped traffic can be a problem on the singletrack.
