Lacombe, Alberta
13C / 55F
Total Time = 1h 15m 32s
Overall Rank = 37/88
Age Group = Men 20-29
Age Group Rank = 4/10
Pre-race routine:

Drove down from Edmonton, drove back and forth between transition areas.
Event warmup:

Jogged from the bike transition to the swim start.
  • 15m 5s
  • 500 meters
  • 03m 01s / 100 meters

Never got into a good rhythm. Fortunately, it was over soon.
What would you do differently?:

Get out of the pack and relax.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Took forever getting my socks on. Today I trained without socks. I'm going to race without socks next summer.
  • 36m 59s
  • 19 kms
  • 30.82 km/hr

I thought I went really fast, but compared to the rest of the group, I clearly didn't.
What would you do differently?:

I need more gears so I can go faster on those downhills.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Excellent. In and out pretty quick. Bit of a tough time racking my bike because the rack was so tall.
  • 23m 29s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 42s  min/km

I don't know where those reserves came from, but I passed a lot of people on this run.
What would you do differently?:

Somehow, I ended with energy, so I guess try to push even harder.

Event comments:

A short race was nice to end the year feeling positive, but I still would have liked the distances to be more accurate.
