West Windsor, New Jersey
United States
CGI Racing
85F / 29C
Total Time = 2h 04m 53s
Overall Rank = 15/735
Age Group = Male 20-24
Age Group Rank = 4/24
Pre-race routine:

I woke up 4 hours before the gun, showered, and arrived at the race venue at 06:00.
Event warmup:

1.25 mi run in 9:05.
  • 25m 27s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 42s / 100 meters

I felt good in the water, so my time was very disappointing.
What would you do differently?:

It's all ability at this point.
Transition 1
  • 01m 28s

My cleanest bike mount this season.
What would you do differently?:

  • 57m 1s
  • 39 kms
  • 41.04 km/hr

I was afraid I was riding much slower than this for most of the race. This is the only leg I'm relatively happy with.
What would you do differently?:

Just need to improve my ability.
Transition 2
  • 00m 59s

I forgot to pull the cords on my shoes tight in transition and realized it about 0.25 mi into the run.
What would you do differently?:

  • 40m 1s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m  min/km

Awful. Terrible. My worst run ever. I didn't hurt; I couldn't make it hurt. I simply couldn't move any faster. I have A LOT of work to do to get back to where I was before the Plantar Fasciitis.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing I could do, but I have a lot of work to do now.
Post race
Warm down:

A little jogging, a lot of stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Ability. Lack of training over the past month. Deteriorated leg muscles. Need I go on?

Event comments:

My second year competing here (a very disappointing performance compared to last year), and I will continue to race here every year. An excellent race.
