85F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 22m 49s
Overall Rank = 57/208
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 6/12
Event warmup:

No time for warmup. Just picked up the race-day packet and set the transition up.
  • 12m 5s
  • 800 yards
  • 01m 31s / 100 yards

I was happy with the swim. I didn't push the pace and just put a relax swim in. I really did zero prep work for the swim. In fact I realize at 9:30 PM the night before that my wetsuit was in storage and didn't have time to drive the 45 minutes to pick it up.
What would you do differently?:

While temps were high enough to not require a wetsuit, the extra bouyancy would have been nice.
Transition 1
  • 03m 7s

I had an aweful transition. I normally would have my top on under the wetsuit, but I left my bib waistband at home so I had to pin it to my jersey. When I went to put the jersey on it rolled up on my and I couldn't get it down. I had to run to a volunteer to get assitance. Overall a mess of a transition
What would you do differently?:

Wear my jersey and bring a waistband bib holder.
  • 39m 45s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 19.77 mile/hr

I'm happy with the average pace given my fitness level. I probably could have pushed slightly harder, but I think I left just enough to finish the run without any significant issue.
What would you do differently?:

Not too much. Maybe practice cornering at higher speeds.
Transition 2
  • 01m 13s

I had my new running shoes which I had yet to put zips or lace loose enough to slip on; basically had to tie each shoe. That was the only thing that held me up.
What would you do differently?:

Install the zips.
  • 25m 52s
  • 3.12 miles
  • 08m 17s  min/mile

While I was slightly spent from the bike, I wasn't destroyed. My heartrate normalize about a mile in, but I had a tough time picking up the pace. In fact I was able to speak without issue, but had not additional pickup left in my legs. My guess is that it was a result of only 1 month of training.
What would you do differently?:

get more brick training in.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of preparation in both training and finding all of my tri equipment before the event.

Event comments:

Overall a well organized event. The course layout is fair. While waves supposively have been an issue in the past, today the lake was flat. The field was a mix of experienced and novice, and with the women starting first there was a lot of traffic on the bike course - only an issue for those that get upset with a lack of proper riding techniques. I would say a good event to participate in.
