Temple, Texas
United States
80F / 27C
Total Time = 55m 32s
Overall Rank = 10/162
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 2/13
Event warmup:

15 minute run, short swim
  • 08m 16s
  • 450 yards
  • 01m 50s / 100 yards

We were seeded by our estimated swim time. I was seeded 26th and finished 26th. Unfortunately, some ahead of me do not knwo their swim ability.

With 150 to go, I caught up to a guy ahead of me. When I went to pass, he sped up. When I dropped back in behind him he slowed down. WTF?
With 75 to go, I hammered it and passed him at the wall. He was displeased and proceeded to grab my foot a few times. A few hard kicks and that stopped!!
What would you do differently?:

Provide a faster estimate so that I can be properly seeded.
Transition 1
  • 00m 46s

We racked by AG. My AG was right in front of bike in/out.
  • 24m 40s
  • 9.2 miles
  • 22.38 mile/hr

The course was a little more challenging than I anticipated.

Foot grab guy beat me out of T1 but I dropped him like a bad habit on the bike. Never saw him again.
What would you do differently?:

I did a 47 mile ride the day before the race. It took a little out of me.
Transition 2
  • 00m 38s
  • 21m 11s
  • 2.5 miles
  • 08m 28s  min/mile

I really should not have gone on a ride the day before. I rode too hard yesterday and felt it on the run. May have cost me 1st in my AG.
What would you do differently?:

If I have a goal of winning my AG, take it easy teh day before.
Post race
Warm down:

Sucked down some Gatorade.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Hard training ride th eday before. BRILLIANT!

Event comments:

This is a low key race. I don't expect much as it is a fundraiser for a local parks department.

Not intended to be a knock on the race or RD. This is a fun, small race (unless you're male, 40-44 :-) )
