Age Group Rank = 18/24
Event warmup:

  • 25m 23s
  • 1410 yards
  • 01m 48s / 100 yards

Did not work the swim very hard. On the second lap I started to push the pace a little bit. Focused on body rotation and long reach.
What would you do differently?:

Go for it a little more.
Transition 1
  • 03m 51s

Took my time a little too much drying off and making sure I had all the gel etc for the bike ride
  • 2h 22m 8s
  • 40.3 miles
  • 17.01 mile/hr

Took a very time consuming pee break in the middle of the ride.
My feet hurt the last hour - felt like they were bruising on the outside edge mid food.
What would you do differently?:

Avoid the pee break and try to do it on the run - its probably quicker to do during the run.
Transition 2
  • 02m 54s

Did not run through the transition area. Stopped a moment to chat with John.
Another pee break. Overall a slow transition, but I was trying to mentally prepare for the run.
What would you do differently?:

Start thinking about the transition and what I need to do before I get into the transition area
  • 1h 31m 29s
  • 8.8 miles
  • 10m 24s  min/mile

Aweful. Starting off 1st 3 miles run a mile, walk through transition.
Next 5 miles I would run 1/2 a mile then walk 1/10 mile. Surprised still avg 10:24 with all the walking. Legs did not hurt and I wasn't winded. The wind and sun were draining me. When I did run, my pace was good and was passing a lot of people.
What would you do differently?:

Gut it out and avoid walking any segments.
Post race
Warm down:

Lay down in the shade, Gatorade, Hoagie, beer.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mental & Physical preparation for the long run. Needed some more long training runs to be confident.

Event comments:

Well organized and lots of volunteers. Only drawback was the course itself. Pond was very dirty - like swimming in duck crap. Out & back bike (2 times) and out and back run were somewhat boring.
