Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

swam a little
  • 11m 25s

Felt good on the swim, took it easy in the Thrash Zone, after the turn had a bit of trouble with swimming straight

swim straighter

transition felt fast, suit came off quickly
  • 51m 44s

Rode with John and JT for the first half, John had pre-rode and gave me some good advice on what was upcoming. Dropped them on one of the last climbs, i can't descend with them but make it up on the climbs and flat power sections.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m

fast transition
  • 28m 51s
  • 4 miles
  • 07m 13s  min/mile

Started off fast, nice to have a few hundred meters of flat grass to get the leg speed up. Felt great the whole time on course, could see second place runner a few times but couldn't reel him in. Finished strong, didn't feel like I slowed down, kept a consistent pace throughout the race. One of my best runs.
What would you do differently?:

reel in the guy ahead of me
Post race
Warm down:

Drank a coke
