Pre-race routine:

Arrived 6:45; set up transition areal got marked and picked up chip.
Event warmup:

Ran some laps around the parking lot. Had an energy gel at 7:30.
  • 16m 33s
  • 711 yards
  • 02m 20s / 100 yards

The wind and resulting chop made it a hard swim but I do not navigate well on counterclockwise courses. I lost the race here. The ladies before me and after me each swam 3 minutes faster.
What would you do differently?:

Swim more.
Transition 1
  • 02m 5s
What would you do differently?:

  • 49m 50s
  • 14.5 miles
  • 17.46 mile/hr

Excellent ride. Training is paying off.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 58s

Very quick transition.
What would you do differently?:

  • 28m 45s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 16s  min/mile

It was a good run for me--a shade slower than Athens, but I did lose my way twice so without that it would have been a PB.
What would you do differently?:

Know the course better (which I will now that I have done it once).
Post race
Warm down:

Got food; cheered on finishers. Changed into dry clothes.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not practicing swimming in the past month.

Event comments:

Gets better every year!
