Overall Rank = 28/327
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 4/23
Pre-race routine:

Woke up @ 5 like usual. Ate PB&J and sipped on some G'Ade on the way to the park.
Event warmup:

Fifteen min easy bike w/ a couple of pickups thrown in. Short run w/ some pickups. Followed by about 5 min or so of swimming.
  • 09m 9s
  • 600 yards
  • 01m 30s / 100 yards

Non-USAT race so wet suits were legal. For one of the first times I was actually able to draft in the first part of this race. I drafted off the lead swimmers in the wave until the first buoy and then I got tangled up with some slower swimmers in one of the previous waves. Rest of the swim was uneventful.
What would you do differently?:

Keep swimming hard and practicing open water swimming.
Transition 1
  • 01m 31s

What would you do differently?:

Keep practicing and go faster.
  • 32m 10s
  • 12.8 miles
  • 23.88 mile/hr

Good bike for me. I pushed the pace hard from the beginning. Best bike split I've had on this course.
What would you do differently?:

More miles & more intervals in training.
Transition 2
  • 00m 30s

Fastest in AG!
What would you do differently?:

Keep practicing and pushing.
  • 22m 59s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 23s  min/mile

I thought I was leading my AG when I got off the bike. Turns out I was second. I got passed by my buddy Bobby around the 1 mile mark and another guy in my AG passed me around mile 2. Need to run harder/faster.
What would you do differently?:

Need to be more consistent w/ my run training.
Post race
Warm down:

Crossed finish line and thought about vomiting. Held off the vomit and sat in the lake w/ my buddy Bobby. Hung out waiting for awards, but the set up computer crashed and the awards ceremony was cancelled. Pleased w/ my effort today. Course PR!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My run is still holding me back. I need to be more consistent w/ my weekly mileage along w/ some harder running.
