89F / 32C
Total Time = 1h 34m 38s
Overall Rank = 12/88
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 4/9
Pre-race routine:

got everyone up early and packed the car for the 20 minute ride out to the race site
Event warmup:

set up transition, then William and I ran some pickups. Got in the water and did a few strokes, then it was time to start
  • 16m 46s
  • 875 yards
  • 01m 55s / 100 yards

not a bad swim, not as good as last week, but drifted a little more, so the navigation wasn't quite as tight as last week.
What would you do differently?:

navigate better
Transition 1
  • 01m 35s

on the official results, both transitions are in the bike time. however, I had my watch, so have a good handle on the first transition. The second is a bit more guess work, since I forgot to hit the button from the bike until I left T2 on the run, but I have a pretty good idea.
  • 55m 35s
  • 20 miles
  • 21.59 mile/hr

good ride. played leap frog with another ride a good bitof the way. Kept just outside the 3 bike length limit and when he slowed down a bit, would sling shot around him and he would get outside the draft zone until i went to slow, and around he'd go. passed everyone on the bike that passed me (except my leapfrog partner who finished just ahead of me), caught a bunch of people
What would you do differently?:

not much. left it out on the course
Transition 2
  • 00m 16s

this went by realy quickly.
What would you do differently?:

  • 20m 30s
  • 3 miles
  • 06m 50s  min/mile

started out ahead of my friend, but he caught me about 1/2 mile in. Stayed with him for the rest of the run. couldn't quite catch him. If I had, I would be in 3rd for the age group. 5 seconds separated us overall, 11 seconds on the run. only thing I didn't do was projectile vomit on him to make him slow down :).
Just after the turn around, I passed William and he said "you're in 12th overall,pick it up!" Funny boy.
What would you do differently?:

learn to projectile vomit on the guy in front of me.
Post race
Warm down:

tried not to throw up on my friends. got some vitamin water and eventually a bannana after I was sure it would stay down. Visited with all of the people that I knew that were racing

What limited your ability to perform faster:

genetics, training. Trainng is coming along, so we'll focus on that :)

Event comments:

This is a good local race. How local? Well they don't use timing chips. Almost everyone knows everyone else. Best kind of race there is (would be nice if they had timing chips)
