Pre-race routine:

Pre race routine?? What's that? It's my first tri. Drank a bunch of Gatorade.
  • 22m 1s
  • 1000 yards
  • 02m 12s / 100 yards

Had to swim breaststroke because I did not have a clue about sighting. Still made 1000m in 22 min. Boy was that water cold! It just took your breath away!
What would you do differently?:

Train more. I swam less than 10 times for training.

Ran out of H2O at mile 14. Not good. Legs were seriously cramping. Not enough training, H2O, or energy.
What would you do differently?:

Train harder.
Transition 2

Quick T2 (for me)

All considering, not a bad run considering my legs hurt so much from the ride.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training.

Event comments:

All of my comments are based on how well I performed with my current level of knowledge. There were many things I would have done differently if I would have known. I had no expectations for anything. When I sign up next year, I know exactly what to expect and WILL do better.

Overall the course was great. The race was extremely well run. As I was driving home, I was beat down, bloody, and tired. The next morning, I was up bright and early looking for the next one.
