Total Time = 2h 33m 14s
Overall Rank = 509/2484
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 86/461
Pre-race routine:

Got up ate a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter, water, coffee.
Event warmup:

Peed in my wetsuit and got my legs nice and warm. Ate a cliff shot, drank some water
  • 30m
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m / 100 meters

Good swim for me, ran into a lot of people around buoys. Drafted a bit. Sun was tough on second half.
Transition 1
  • 02m 18s
  • 1h 08m 11s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 21.87 mile/hr

Went hard, passed a lot of people was only passed by a few
What would you do differently?:

Slow down a bit and drink more, only had 3/4 of bottle with clif mix, needed more, paid for it on run
Transition 2
  • 01m 52s
  • 50m 47s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 11s  min/mile

Run killed me because either went too hard on bike or did not fuel enough. Started out ok, ran 7:15, 7:20 then told myself to slow down a bit. Wanted to break 2:30 and had a good chance but around mile 4 I started to feel it and pace fell way down to over 8/miles. Was beat. Did best I could but overall pretty disappointed with run. Was my limiter.
Post race
Warm down:

Ate, drank

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training for marathon so limited time on bike and swim. Bad run for some reason.
