Oklahoma, Oklahoma City
85F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 19m 46s
Overall Rank = 110/259
Age Group = 20-24
Age Group Rank = 10/19
Pre-race routine:

Laid out Transition area, drank Gatorade Endurance, stretched, light jogging
  • 10m 43s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 08s / 100 meters

Pretty good swim, I felt really strong for the first 250 meters, breathing dropped off after that. Overall, much better!
What would you do differently?:

Breath better for the last 250.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Not too bad, a little slow putting the stuff on but I was sucking wind from the swim so it was okay.
What would you do differently?:

  • 44m 28s
  • 13 miles
  • 17.54 mile/hr

Felt pretty good, had some early cramping problems but the Gatorade on the bike helped. Felt fast in the second half. T2 time built in here so i think I averaged around 18 on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

nothing really, felt good about my bike segment.
Transition 2
  • 00m

This one is easy!
What would you do differently?:

  • 24m 35s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 56s  min/mile

I felt horrible about this but after seeing the times, I feel much better. Definitely my strongest of the three events. I made up 25 places during the run so. My stomach was cramping from the effort on the bike so that is why i didnt feel very good.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Drank Gatorade and Endurox shake

What limited your ability to perform faster:

T1 and swim. I expended so much energy in the swim that it slowed my first half of the bike too.

Event comments:

Excellent race!! wish we could have had chip timers but everything else was awesome!
