Total Time = 2h 29m 51s
Overall Rank = 54/
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 7/
Pre-race routine:

Got up at 4:15 or so and started my breakfast and packed the truck.
Event warmup:

Talk to people and family. Tried to get a swim in but it was to late they called me back in.
  • 24m 59s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 31s / 100 yards

Swim at beginning wasn't to good. Got some stomach cramps but went away about 500 yards in. Started feeling good after that.
What would you do differently?:

Hrmmmm.... Lets see..... I would probably not do a 5 hour energy before.
Transition 1
  • 00m 43s

Did pretty well this time......
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 05m 16s
  • 24 miles
  • 22.06 mile/hr

Started feeling sick around 50 min in. Pushed through it, but overall it was a good bike leg for sure. I held back about 10% for the run. Low back was aching some toward the end.
What would you do differently?:

Not real sure..
Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

Did pretty well here. To much to grab on the way out to the run. Number, armband, garmin watch to put on armband, hat.
What would you do differently?:

hrmmm... Some how lower the amount of stuff to bring.
  • 57m 43s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 09m 17s  min/mile

FAIL.... started off on a 7:30 pace feeling good then stomach cramps hit and felt like throwing up. Walked for half the race then at 4.8 miles it went away enough to run again. I picked the pace up and finished the race. Legs felt great, but just felt sick. I have not figured out why that happen. I did not feel hot or dehydrated. Just burping a lot and feeling like throwing up.
What would you do differently?:

I have got to figure out nutrition if I'm ever going to get good at this sport.

I think this is the first report I have read that has a 5 hour energy for a prerace fluid intake. Awesome swim and bike, both were pretty fast.
