They hosed the online swim times. So we were bunched up. I had a 10 year old girl in front of me!

Nothing I could do differently.
Transition 1

good T1.

I thought my swim was slow, so I tried to push the bike hard. This affected my run badly.
What would you do differently?:

Not push the bike so hard.
Transition 2
  • 00m

I felt I had a good T2. Times weren't recorded.

I trashed my legs on the bike and didn't have a lot of mojo for the run.
What would you do differently?:

Uh, maybe not push the bike so hard.
Post race
Warm down:

Tried not to puke after getting my chip taken off. Successful!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Pushing the bike too hard.

Event comments:

Not sure if I'll do it again next year. It is a long drive for a minisprint.
