Nothing realy just set up transition and miled about picked up race packet and got marked.
  • 23m 13s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 25s / 100 yards

The swim went great only got punched in the face twice before the first bouy, then at the first bouy the group I was with decided to doggy paddle around it and when I ran into them the guy right in front of me just stopped all together with my right arm caught between his legs which dragged me under,I used my left arm to shove him away and yanked my other arm free. After this I kept about 5 yards between me and the rest of the pack, and the rest of the swim went great.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 50s

Still not sure what it is that i'm doing that is taking me so long in T1 and T2.
What would you do differently?:

Practice more
  • 1h 08m 33s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 21.75 mile/hr

This was my first race on my new KUOTA K factor that Roni got for me a few weeks ago. The road is a little rough but very flat and for the first time I was catching people and passing them, only 2 people passed me,so I think going with a TT bike worked out realy well for me.It started to rain after my first lap but only lasted for a couple seconds but the wind stayed but it was not to bad.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 54s

Again i'm not sure why i'm so slow one of my bike shoes had come off when I got into T2 and had to go back and get it but I thought i was quick about it who knows I'll work on it.
What would you do differently?:

more practice
  • 49m 24s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 57s  min/mile

I'm very happy with this run I kept my head in the game and kept my pace right were i wanted it.Again this course is very flat maybe 10 feet difference from start to finnish so you can just fly, like a lot of people did.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Walked around drank water and Ginger ale had some snacks and cheered the rest of the people coming in.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of expeirence maybe next year I'll be a little faster.

Event comments:

I look forward to doing this race again next year to see how well I can improved over the winter.
