Pre-race routine:

Got marked.
Set up transition area.
Ate breakfast (bagel w/peanut butter)
Drank Accelerade and some water
Event warmup:

walking and stretching. nothing really serious.
  • 29m 15s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 57s / 100 meters

Good swim. Got a little off approaching the first right hand turn, but then everything was good.
What would you do differently?:

sight a little better. goggles fogged up. probably could have gone a little harder.
Transition 1
  • 04m 19s

Transition was kind of a long run and was a little slick - it had rained a lot the night before and the grass was really wet and there was a lot of mud.
What would you do differently?:

not much. messed with putting on bike gloves and then decided not to - that was the only real slow part I had to the transition.
  • 1h 15m 56s
  • 25 miles
  • 19.75 mile/hr

Course was fun. The in and out on the transition was kind of long and messy. The turns were really kind of fun - never really liked them before.

Got my stomach messed up at the end - popped a gel too soon after a piece of cliff bar and it wouldn't get out of my stomach.
What would you do differently?:

Drink water or not eat cliff bars.
Transition 2
  • 03m 5s

Transition was good. Just wanted to puke really bad.
What would you do differently?:

Work more on nutrition.
  • 1h 00m 9s
  • 6.25 miles
  • 09m 37s  min/mile

Stomach was full and I really wanted to puke. Made running hard. Couldn't drink any more of anything until about mid way through the second loop.
What would you do differently?:

Work on nutrition.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretch. Accelerade. Water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Full stomach. was having a great race until the end of the bike. I maybe should stick with liquid nutrition - no bars.

Event comments:

Good Race. Lots of things going on. Extremely well run for as many different people as were participating.
