Pre-race routine:

Wake up, drop duece, and have me a yummy yummy PB & J with nanners. I have always liked getting to transition very early to get setup and give myself plenty of time to chit chat before warmup time. Find friends, encourage others, etc...
Event warmup:

I like to find a nice quiet piece of pavement or grass to do some stretching. Then go for a 5 minute jog to get things loosened up. Then off to the water to swim at least a couple hundred yards.
  • 07m 1s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 36s / 100 yards

I ran in an dove, but my HR chest strap was pushed down and I had to readjust it. I got halfway to the bouy and was 10 yards ahead of everyone else in the wave. I caught many other waves and just plowed through to the exit. I felt very comfortable in this portion, even in dealing with wave traffic.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing at this distance, wetsuit for longer distances
Transition 1
  • 00m 45s

Had to pause a second to find my bike, but helmet and sunglasses went on and I was off
What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 52s
  • 15.5 miles
  • 22.21 mile/hr

My quads felt tight for the first half, but they losened up in time for the run. Had a nice downhill to get out of the shoes without losing speed.
What would you do differently?:

Probably more warmup or stretching
Transition 2
  • 00m 47s

smooth as can be! Hopped off of the bike and didn't miss a beat all the way through transition!
What would you do differently?:

  • 25m 11s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 07s  min/mile

My bursitis started to bug me towards the high school, but then the pain went away on the descent.
What would you do differently?:

Run Faster
Post race
Warm down:

stretching and walking

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My running abilities. My weight.

Event comments:

Kinda crowded at times, but not bad at all.

Sweet race, great swim. Some of us were looking for you but we've never met in person so wouldn't recognize each other.
