Pre-race routine:

Set up transition and Talked Amanda Thru her race and other racers. trying to get a feel of the people who were competeing. Although I did not listen to my Ipod today????? maybe something I should reconsider.
Event warmup:

Streaching and a little swim.
  • 06m 26s

  • 01m 46s / 100 meters

not a bad swim been really working on my 1/2 i/m swim not really pushing the swim. maybe something to reconsider.
What would you do differently?:

do more intervals to increase speed.

Good ride felt really good. was not anticipating the head wind. caught me a little off gaurd.
What would you do differently?:

not to much maybe add some speed drills to my workouts.

Pretty smooth. felt realy good. shoes and helmet poped off just right and out on the run was great. I think I picked the right spot.

Was really trying to get 6:55 miles. I was struggling a little, not sure why? could not breath right and also could not drink water due to the heavy breathing.
What would you do differently?:

need to work on drinking out of cups. balanceing my breating while drinking.
Post race
Warm down:

Drank alot of water got a massage and then re ran the run course with Amanda and then Run walked the Run with Joe. I really thought Joe was gonna kill me as I tried to get him movin. Joe and Amanda did an excellent Job and made it woth working with them.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not haveing my family with me. and maybe I should have listened to my Ipod before the race.

Event comments:

I think James and T3am T3 did a great job. James did a great job as a race director. (considering it was his 1st year. I think they did well and made use of all the suggestions that were given to them for this race.
