Pre-race routine:

We did pack like we were going somewhere for the weekend with all my race gear, kid gear and dog gear... things to bring for the next event - more juice boxes for the kiddo, food for the dog - he may not be coming to many more events until he gets older and is less needy. We were a well oiled machine getting ready in the morning and out the door EARLY by 5 minutes! EARLY!!! Did you hear that!? Early with a 2 year old! Unheard of...

  • 16m 50s
  • 2.1 miles
  • 08m 01s  min/mile

Good run. Went above threshold a little, but made up on bike course.
What would you do differently?:

Run on the trails for training.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 1h 03m
  • 12.4 miles
  • 11.81 mile/hr

The bike was great! They mixed in some of the technical part at the turnaround that in years past had been too muddy. Threw me off a little bit, but I made it through.
What would you do differently?:

Mountain bike a little for training.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 19m
  • 2.1 miles
  • 09m 03s  min/mile

The second run went about 8.5 to 9 minute miles. I chased one guy down and finished with stronger form that I've done in the past. The one odd note to mention was the fact my hamstrings were crying by the end. I guess that's what I get for no mountain biking for a year between events...
Post race
Warm down:

Walking around and stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Listed as more of a B race so it wasn't a training goal to kill it.

Event comments:

Good event and organization gets better and better every year. Though I couldn't tell if we had to pay for post race food or if it was free...
