Total Time = 2h 26m 59s
Overall Rank = 9/132
Age Group = 30-34 Men
Age Group Rank = 1/16
Pre-race routine:

1 piece of bread, gatorade, water. . .
Event warmup:

Swim a little.
  • 22m 48s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 23s / 100 yards

Had a decent swim. I would rather it be a mass start than the wave starts, but oh well.
Transition 1
  • 01m 8s

Actually had a decent transition. . finally.
  • 1h 08m 5s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 21.90 mile/hr

I went into this race just wanting to hammer the bike. . . It was painful, but was happy with my overall time and effort.
Transition 2
  • 01m 3s

Another good transition. . this is not normal.
  • 53m 58s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 41s  min/mile

I knew this was going to be brutal and I was right. I need to work on the run. .for some reason I think a lot of this is mental. I need to toughen up a bit and deal with the pain.
Post race
Warm down:

Water, Gatorade, Pepsi, Grapes, Half Banana.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Heat and not enough speed work on the run.
