View Member's Race Log View other race reports
San Francisco, California
United States
Total Time = 3h 02m
Overall Rank = 667/
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 142/276
Pre-race routine:

get up, rinse off put tri suit on leave for race.
Event warmup:

ride from hotel to transition area with backpack on. Nothing really.
  • 30m
  • 2640 yards
  • 01m 08s / 100 yards

I prepared for this by swimming in a pool. This was my first ever ocean/bay swim, I am happy with results but did not push hard enough, felt as though I could have gone faster - but for the first time ever, very happy
Transition 1
  • 10m 2s
What would you do differently?:

Move Faster. This just killed me, way to slow.
  • 1h 07m
  • 18 miles
  • 16.12 mile/hr

Ride was pretty much as expected. Could not have prepared for this without riding(which i didnt). More seat time needed. Great ride, just slower than I wanted, needed to push more. Wanted to average 18, only hit 16 - disappointed.
Transition 2
  • 02m 43s
What would you do differently?:

not bad, could have been quicker.
  • 1h 11m
  • 8 miles
  • 08m 53s  min/mile

tight course in many sections, unable to speed up or pass
What would you do differently?:

pass early, run as 5K to the bottleneck area, run like 5K on beach area, run like 5K at end
Post race
Warm down:

Try to find way to food, finally did, ate what was there, but it was lacking.

Event comments:

Course is beautiful. I expected more activities on Saturday and Post race, especially for the 30th running. Can't give it a 5 because there was not enough festivities. Also, the merchandise sold out in 1/2 hour.
