Total Time = 2h 28m 53s
Overall Rank = 28/50
Age Group = 30-39
Age Group Rank = 8/12
Event warmup:

Little bit of jogging and swimming in the lake.
  • 24m 29s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 38s / 100 meters

The winds were strong and the water was rough. Bill the hurricane was here..... well not the actual hurricane. We just had the strong winds. The rain started the next day. I had to stop twice during the swim because I swallowed some water..... Apart from that, the swim was OK. The last 2 times I did that triathlon, I had to swim on my back slowly because I got dizzy and everything was spinning. I did not have any problem this time and I did the Olympic distance (yououououou...)
What would you do differently?:

Try not to swallow water next time...

The first leg was really fun and fast, over 40km/h all the way....we had the wind in our back...go Bill go...however, the trip back was painfull, lots of headwinds. The course was pretty flat however.
What would you do differently?:

Shut the wind....
Transition 2

Went very good
What would you do differently?:

The run was mostly done on a trail, no big hills, really nice course. I ran as hard as I could, but after the bike, I was tired and my legs were not very happy. But I managed to finish it in a decent time.

Nice race!  That headwind on the way back in on the bike was just nasty.  I only did the sprint, can't imagine having to turn around and go through that again.
