Pre-race routine:

Woke up and had some oatmeal. Got ready to leave and realized it was storming outside. I wanted to just pack it in and go back to bed but decided to head out to the race site.
Event warmup:

More like a cool down. Got soaked by a huge thunderstorm and super wind gusts that blew down the racks and bikes in the transition area. Luckily I had not racked my bike yet so it didn't end up in the jumbled mess.
  • 04m 29s
  • 300 yards
  • 01m 29s / 100 yards

It looked like quite a few people put in bogus times. No way should someone who says they can swim less than 1:30/100 be giving out on the 3rd lap. The people right around me seemed to have put in correct times. Nobody passed or got passed.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Not sure what my tranisition times were although T1 was too slow.
  • 32m 30s
  • 10.68 miles
  • 19.72 mile/hr

Lots of debris on the road in the park from where the storm blew through. Made it through without getting a flat. I liked the course. I seem to be improving on my bike.
Transition 2
  • 00m

No transition times.
  • 17m 17s
  • 2.4 miles
  • 07m 12s  min/mile

I thought I had a good run. Passed quite a few people. Since the run was short I basically gave it about all I had.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I am in the middle of a training program for the B2B iron distance race so I haven't been doing any speed work. So that being the case I still think it was a good overall effort.
