good swim well organized
What would you do differently?:

not bad but should have focusing on the 400 swim 2 weeks out instead of swimming miles
Transition 1
  • 00m 48s

From the pool to the transition area is very long about 50yrds. and transition point are not assigned.
What would you do differently?:

Get there eairlier and set up a better spot had to opt for the run side over the bike side.

I loved this course and would do it for a fun ride or a trainning ride any time.
What would you do differently?:

parctice practice this course it is very decieving,The rolling hills drive different theen they ride on a bike.
Transition 2

not bad knew this time would be better cuz i got there late so I opted to take a rack next to the run out.
What would you do differently?:

nothing it went really well
  • 23m 9s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 26s  min/mile

Great course and well put together loved the every mile water points.
What would you do differently?:

Find a way to motivate myself I had no one to push me. I was running at a very comfortable pace and wish I could have pushed myself a little more. i guess I need to sign up with people who are just as competitive.
Post race
Warm down:

cheered others on and talked to family

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I did really well I got a PR (I know its only my 3rd race but hey I cut 1:10 off my best time, so far) I got my 2nd goal as well. I just wish I could have ran in a better group. I didnt feel challenged the whole race.

Event comments:

I loved this Race. I will definintly come back, but I will sign up with a group next time.
