Total Time = 1h 52m 39s
Overall Rank = 150/220
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 30/34
Event warmup:

rode 5 miles. did some stretching...
  • 25m 39s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 08s  min/km

A good run for me. Paced myself appropriately - left strength for the ride.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe would have used different shoes since the course was very muddy...
Transition 1
  • 00m
What would you do differently?:

Need to be aggressive. Need to hustle more. Walked with bike to mounting area.
  • 1h 00m 50s
  • 17 miles
  • 16.77 mile/hr

This was only my second time on a road bike and the second time in bike shoes. Considering my newness to cycling, my performance was acceptable
Transition 2
  • 00m

I need to decrease my transition times. Although my shies will not take spped laces, I need to find a way to put the shoes on more quickly. Also, changing out my camelbak to a fuelbelt is taking too much time.
What would you do differently?:

I need to run in and out of the transition area - not stroll or walk!
  • 26m 10s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 14s  min/km

A decent effort.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

transition times need improvement. Need to spend more time on the bike.

Event comments:

A well run event with a great bike portion!

Course: Course was not a road race but a modified cross country course with some road features. Due to heavy rain, the distance was not actually a full 5k but lsightly short. Volunteers did a good job of improving the conditions of the course where they could.
