Total Time = 1h 14m 10s
Overall Rank = 14/76
Age Group = M3039
Age Group Rank = 5/14
Pre-race routine:

My wave didn't start until 11:40 so I had lots of time in the morning. Didn't wake up until 7:30, had a coffee and breakfast and just relaxed. Went to the site around 10:00am. Registered and then talked to Jeremy for a bit until his wave went off at 11:05. I then racked my bike and put the gear out. It was still raining lightly at this point so I tried to cover things up a bit.
Event warmup:

Tried to loosen up while the previous wave was swimming then once we could get in the water, I did about 300m warmup. Water temp was a little cool but good for racing.
  • 10m 40s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 25s / 100 meters

Time includes getting out of the pool and running down a hall outside over a matt (maybe 20-30 seconds?)

Pretty good swim. I would have liked to go maybe 15 or 20 seconds faster but I'll take it. Goggles were fogging up pretty bad by the end of it so I couldn't watch the pace clock.
What would you do differently?:

Remember the magic anti-fog mix I left at home.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Struggled to get the tri-top on. I meant to practice swimming with it but left it too late and I didn't dare try swimming with it for the first time during the race. Probably lost about 20 seconds fighting with it.
What would you do differently?:

Practice swimming with the tri-top on before the race.
  • 37m 21s
  • 20 kms
  • 32.13 km/hr

Time includes T1

Pretty good leg I think. The course was very wet with puddles all over the place from the rain but it didn't bother me. I went pretty hard but not so hard as to kill myself.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m

Struggled with the socks this time - almost just skipped them but thought that might be a bad idea. Probably lost another 20 seconds here. Other than that, it was ok.
What would you do differently?:

Learn to run sockless
  • 26m 10s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 14s  min/km

Time includes T2

Pretty much what I would have expected based on the amount of running I have done in the last two months. The hills really killed me.
What would you do differently?:

Not get hurt and run more beforehand.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My sloooooow running ability.

Nice race!  Didn't realize you were racing or I would have tried to track you down before/after - I was in the wave just before you (I was the guy that Jeremy was trying to run down).
