Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4:45, ate a PBJ and milk, hopped in the car and drove to the site.
Event warmup:

I forgot my packet in my car, so I had to run back from the transition area (1/3 mile) and back. Got in the water and did some quick sprints.
  • 14m 29s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

Got off to a great start, got behind a strong swimmer and started drafting. Then, all of a sudden I had a severe "side stitch" pain. It hurt to breathe!!!! I slowed it down a bit and cruised to the shoreline.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure....maybe not start out as fast, but thats what a sprint is all about!!!
Transition 1
  • 02m 16s

I had a long run out of transition. overall everything was smooth.
What would you do differently?:

Scout the transition area and not pick the FARTHEST rack from the mount line!!!!
  • 29m 51s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 24.98 mile/hr

A little difficulty getting into a "groove" for the first 4-5 miles. After that, got comfortable and started to hammer away
What would you do differently?:

not much
Transition 2
  • 01m 58s

Somebody kicked my gear!!!!!!!!!! my shoes were on the other side of the transition area.
What would you do differently?:

set a trap that amputates a lower leg if they kick my shit!!!!!
  • 21m 40s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 58s  min/mile

Had difficulty getting a good breathing pattern. Very surprised that I ran as fast as I did. It felt much slower.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

ate some chips and subway sanwich.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

10-15 lbs

Event comments:

Oh, my ! Sweet race! You rocked it. I'm guessing you weren't some of that eye-candy I saw out on the run course, because you were already DONE!

Nice job!
