  • 440 yards

I decided to wear the speedsuit due to the short distance. It helps but but not like a wetsuit. Swim was uneventful. I was only hit twice and that was on my feet rounding the bouy.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 00m

T1 and T2 times were included in the bike split.

I've had so-so T1s in my past 3 tris. This was alot better. Speedsuit was easy to remove so that helped. No problems getting the shoes and helmet on. Very happy with this T1.

I did Eagleman the week before and I really felt it the 1st loop. There was nice headwind on Rt. 71 which did not help either. 2nd loop was better but the energy was lacking. A little disappointed but what can you do?
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Another fast T. No problems.
  • 00m
  • 3 miles
  •  min/mile

I think the course is around 2.9 b/c I was able to go under 19 for the 2nd straight year. I was surprised I did b/c I felt very comfortable and had a good push at the end.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Cheered the rest of Tri-DE peeps in and drank a beer.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Doing a HIM the week before. I was almost 2 minutes slower than last year. There was not as much competition than last year as I came in 36th this year but in the 50s last year and I did 1:18.

Event comments:

A great low key race. Perfect for 1st timers.
