Total Time = 1h 20m 57s
Overall Rank = 62/206
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 9/19
Event warmup:

Stretched and then jogged
  • 15m 18s
  • 2 miles
  • 07m 39s  min/mile

Went out too fast, but got into pace by 1/2 mile, but then slowed down too much.
What would you do differently?:

Go out slower and keep a more ven pace.
Transition 1
  • 01m 10s

Transition area was not set-up fairly, some people had bikes racked closer to exit than others. I had to go to the far end then back to the front to exit. Added to the transition time
  • 44m 43s
  • 14 miles
  • 18.78 mile/hr

Went out well and keep good pace until last two miles and then wind just beat me.
What would you do differently?:

No tmuch just need to work on endurance and getting more comfortable in aero bars
Transition 2
  • 00m 58s

Need to work on bike transition to get more comfortable with shoe removal and dismount.
What would you do differently?:

Practice the transition from bike to run more often.
  • 18m 48s
  • 2 miles
  • 09m 24s  min/mile

Not good- grabbed water existing T2, choked a little bit and then developed side stitch that hampered my entire run. Had to walk to to get the pain to subside to a tolerable level.
What would you do differently?:

Don't try to run and drink. Just walk while taking hydration. I have had problems with drinking on the run in past and said I wouldn't do again but figured what the heck.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked and drank gatorade

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Side stitch and overall endurance

Event comments:

Took 3rd place in Clydesdale. But was leading going into final run. Better run and i win the Clydesdale. Strained lower back figure it is due to not being properly fitted to the aero bars.
