Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
United States
70F / 21C
Total Time = 1h 37m 34s
Overall Rank = 14/76
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 4/6
Pre-race routine:

eat and run around the house.
Event warmup:

eat a little more. talk to anyone who wants to. swim ~200 yards to settle in.
  • 13m 56s
  • 875 yards
  • 01m 35s / 100 yards

i started my watch exactly when the timer started and checked it as soon as i got out of the water and my actual swim time was 13:20. the other 36 seconds were spent running/stripping my way up to T1. Great swim for me though! finished it 2 minutes faster than anticipated.
What would you do differently?:

ahh, nothing. im happy with it.
Transition 1
  • 01m 31s

shaved 21 seconds from last year and i even had a full wetsuit on instead of that shorty john thing from before.
  • 57m 29s
  • 18.4 miles
  • 19.21 mile/hr

last year i biked this in 61:10 and hoped to do it in 59:xx this year. so coming in another 2 minutes faster than expected makes me even more happy.
What would you do differently?:

lose a few more pounds and ride more hills. i could gain steadily on the flats but lose ground on the hills. not sure what was more the problem, the flab or not enough bike riding.....
Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

about 10 seconds faster than last years time.
  • 23m 52s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 40s  min/mile

i didnt feel like i was running a sub 24 minute 5k, thats for sure. i did not practice any bricks yet this year. felt terrible first 2 miles. after climbing the hill near mile 3 at a near death crawl, i felt much better that 3rd mile and cranked it out to the finish. knocked off exactly 2 minuted from my run time last year. i got concerned that i have to quadruple these distances for savageman and somehow survive and finish.
What would you do differently?:

practice more bricks. suck it up.
Post race
Warm down:

drank water. got pics with family. enjoyed the feeling of completing another race.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not enough biking. of the miles of logged biking this year, not even 100 of them have been on the road. not enough brick practice.

Event comments:

if they get my timing and name fixed and in the right category, i'll be much happier.
