Pre-race routine:

Up at 5; PB on whole grain; banana. Got everything ready and headed to transition. Found out that the weather conditions on the water was terrible and that they had canceled the swim portion, making this a simple Du. Set up transition and milled around.
Event warmup:

  • 00m
  • 0 yards
  • / 100 yards
Transition 1
  • 01m 55s

Started out of transition with no issues.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 18m 4s

  • 19.10 mile/hr

Nutrition was spot on. Took a Gu about 30 min into the race, and took a sip of Accelerade every 100 kJ or so.
What would you do differently?:

Start training more with power now that I know my knee is able to handle the stress.
Transition 2
  • 03m 55s

No issues. Took a bit of time to put sunscreen on.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 00m 9s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 09m 41s  min/mile

Ran with another individual (dave wilson/Atlanta) and he and I kept each other moving. We spent more time chatting than focusing on running, which is a slight part of the total run time.
What would you do differently?:

Nada. Running with someone is better than running alone.
Post race
Warm down:

walking around; stretching under a tree, icing the knee

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of speed training

Event comments:

Overall, a good race. I'll try to come back in the future and get the open water ocean swim behind me.

Course: No swim due to ocean conditions. Breeze was steady 20 knots from the east, across the bay, making the waters so that the rescue kayak's could not enter the water. Only the Pros were allowed to swim.
