Bear, Delaware

Piranha Sports, LLC
77F / 25C
Total Time = 57m 42s
Overall Rank = 10/114
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 1/9
Pre-race routine:

Picke up Jen and Andrea, and drove to race site. Had my usual PB sandwich.
Event warmup:

  • 11m 18s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 34s / 100 yards

I did not like this swim at all. I still don't know why -- I usually love the swim. I was prepared, but never really got into a rhythm. Also, it was my first swim in my wetsuit, and it felt a bit constricting.
What would you do differently?:

Get into a rhythm.
Transition 1
  • 01m 46s

My wetsuit got stuck! I need to practice transitioning better!
  • 30m 33s
  • 10 miles
  • 19.64 mile/hr

I loved, loved, loved this bike ride! Another woman and me kept passing each other. It was good fun. I finally passed her, but she was right behind me at the end of the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 9s

Better than my last T2 from last year, but needs to really be under 1 minute!
What would you do differently?:

Go faster!
  • 12m 58s
  • 2 miles
  • 06m 29s  min/mile

I don't think this was 2 miles, because I have never run sub 7 in a tri. But, I will take it!

Event comments:

Great race! But, Piranha always puts on great races. I would recommend this to any woman!
