Overall Rank = 1713/2463

Age Group Rank = 402/520
Pre-race routine:

Up and breakfast at 4:00 AM.
Event warmup:

Walking around. Didn't get in the water before the race
  • 1h 19m 46s
  • 3800 meters
  • 02m 06s / 100 meters

I really enjoyed the swim. It was a very good swim for me. Could have cut a little more time off if there had been another buoy on the return swim. That swim up the canal was like salmon swimming upstream. Got kicked with about 200m to go.
Transition 1
  • 08m 26s

Not bad in transition. Bike jersey stuck and had a tough time getting that on. Pretty crowded in transition
  • 6h 11m 37s
  • 112 miles
  • 18.08 mile/hr

First loop had a little rain at the start. Climbs were pretty tough, and flat land training in Winnipeg did not help with th is. 2nd loop was very tough. Near second major climb, rain really picked up with lightning. Considered stopping, but kept going. Heavy rains slowed descents, as I couldn't see.
Transition 2
  • 09m 54s

Seemed like transition took a long time. Had trouble with jersey for run. Also took time to dry off a little with towel. Fully changed for run.
  • 4h 39m 12s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 10m 40s  min/mile

Felt awesome through about 11 miles, then had to walk / run for the remainder. Got pretty hot on the run, as the sun / humidity were out.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked and watched others on marathon with group.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Didn't get in training this year like last year. Time lost was on bike due to rain / slow descents
