Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 6:15AM. Double checked my bags for all equipment. Ate a piece of bread and a powerbar with some G2 orange. Left for the race from parents house at 6:50 stopping for DD for Julie and Mom. Got to the event at about 7:20. Checked in and got everything set up.

Water was nice. Didn't need a wetsuit but would of helped my time.
What would you do differently?:

I should consentarte more on myself the who is around me and work on breathing properly rather then keeping head above the water. Also should stay on the outside so as not to get kicked.
Transition 1

T1 was good. Took a little more time than I wanted with putting on shoes. I was located right next to the exit and was able to get out quickly and pass a few people.
What would you do differently?:

Need to get clip-less. and a tri top.
  • 40m 3s

Did well to keep speed and cadence any flat points. Probably averaged about 22-25 mi/hr. Down hills helped getting up speed .
What would you do differently?:

Need to clime more hill and get speed up on them. Also should work on Cadence.
Transition 2

Push myself more on the down hills.
Post race
Warm down:

Ate a lot of watermelon and drank more G2. Did some minor Stretching.

Help my patents move out of their house lifting lots of heavy furniture.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

A lot more people there then what I thought. Well organized but they allowed cars to drive on the roads during the running rout. I saw 2 cars going opposite directions trying to get threw the pack.
