Pre-race routine:

Woke at 5am, coffee and MTRx bar. Rode 18 miles on SCT for both brick workout and warm up. Got to race site, received number and timinig deveice
Event warmup:

18 Mile Bike
  • 52m 25s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 26s  min/mile

Timing device was a joke!! It may have been workthwhile had the timing mat been at the START line rather than almost 2 miles into the race! Traffic control was great. Had slow start due to crowds but accomplished negative splits throught the race and finished with a nice kick the last 1.2 miles.
What would you do differently?:

Pushed my way to the front to get the most accurate race time. Kept a more steady pace instead of constantly slowing down to stay with my friends.
Post race
Warm down:

ran back on the course for approx. 1 mile. Hot shower, Hammer recoverite and stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

15 layers of clothes, nasty rain

Event comments:

Get the concept of using a timing chip to get accurate times!!!
