Pre-race routine:

Woke up got my bike and my daughters bike ready and loaded on the truck.
Event warmup:

Stood around with ABQKid and talked to some folks.
  • 07m 55s
  • 437 yards
  • 01m 49s / 100 yards

Swim was last, and not very crowded when I entered to pool. Just felt a little out of sync so not my best swim, but I'll take it.
What would you do differently?:

Should have tried to push a little harder.
Transition 1
  • 01m 16s

Run to Bike. Have no idea why this took so long. Switch shoes, helmet on and go...who knows.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure.
  • 30m 31s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 24.44 mile/hr

Felt OK. I felt a little sluggish and had forgot about the rollers on this course. I spun up the hills and tried to hammer the downhills. I passed a lot of people on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Haven't done any speed work and I could tell.
Transition 2
  • 01m 28s

Bike to Swim. Again have no idea what is taking so long.
  • 20m 49s
  • 3 miles
  • 06m 56s  min/mile

Just tried to hang on to ABQKid. Stayed with him for about 2 1/2 miles until his foot started to act up, so I just tried to hang on to the kid that passed me. Saw a small rattlesnake on the path about 2 miles in.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure, this was a good run for me.
Post race
Warm down:

Stood around with ABQKid and waited for the kids triathlon to start. My daughter and ABQKid's son both completed the kids tri.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

No speed work. Overall was a good race for me.
