Bozeman, Montana
United States
Total Time = 2h 29m 28s
Overall Rank = 24/52
Age Group = 20-24
Age Group Rank = 4/5
Event warmup:

I stretched a little. Had a few cliff shot blocks.
  • 35m 51s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 23s / 100 meters

Mentally I did not want to swim a mile and I had no idea what it would take out of me and if I would be able to finish the triathlon strong or not. It was a poor swim and I flipped onto my back a couple times.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Transition 1
  • 00m

It wasn't too bad. I got out of my wetsuit better than I have been but I didn't get clipped in as fast as I would have liked.
  • 1h 10m 32s
  • 40 kms
  • 34.03 km/hr

I did pretty good on the bike. Passed quite a few people and was never passed. Had one bad stretch where it felt like there was something wrong with my bike..It wasn't rolling very I was checking tired, brakes, etc. Had two cliff shots on the bike...1 at the beginning and 1 at the turnaround.
Transition 2
  • 00m

It wasn't too bad. I took my feet out of my shoes while getting ready to dismount for the first time ever! I should have practiced. It would save time. Its easier to run barefoot than in bike shoes. Had a cliff shot before heading out.
  • 43m 4s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 19s  min/km

There were areas on this run where I just wanted to walk. Then a few minutes later I felt great. It was weird. When my back was to the sun I felt a lot better and ran faster.
What would you do differently?:

Do more brick workouts.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched and walked around.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Inexperience at Olympic distance and my horrible swim.
