jumping up and down in place
  • 29m
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 40s  min/mile

First loop was good. Kept a nice Zone 2 pace and was happy with my run. Didn't really feel warmed up until about 2.5 miles, though. Got passed by a lot of people.
What would you do differently?:

Warm-up a little more. Start right at the front of the start line.
Transition 1

  • 1h 04m 54s
  • 20 miles
  • 18.49 mile/hr

I rocked this bike leg!! I'm really proud of my split, and it was definitely the strongest part of the day. I executed the plan perfectly.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, except maybe not drink as much.
Transition 2
  • 00m 34s
  • 27m 42s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 14s  min/mile

Sucked!! I did not stick with the plan. I slowed way down on the second mile, and I'm not really sure why. My stomach was a bit heavy, and I was breathing very hard. I was able to pick it up for the third mile, but at that point it was too little too late.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder.

Event comments:

Being a first year event, I thought overall this was a good race. Relaxed and low-key is always nice. It will be even better next year, I'm sure.
