Total Time = 1h 53m 49s
Overall Rank = 98/238
Age Group = M35-39
Age Group Rank = 13/17
Event warmup:

Swam a little in the canal then chatted with some fellow racers
  • 15m 9s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m / 100 meters

I swam harder then ever before. The safe layout of the course made me confident enough to go at a faster pace.
I was doing great until the return leg when I started drifting off to the left. I added 50m to the swim by poor navigation.
What would you do differently?:

Sight better
Transition 1
  • 01m 52s
  • 51m 36s
  • 30 kms

I took no cycling water bottles on my frame, just two little bottles in the back pockets of my tri shirt. I almost fell off the bike trying to put the bottle back in after taking a sip.
Transition 2
  • 01m 15s
  • 41m 19s
  • 7.5 kms
  • 05m 31s  min/km

Really struggled. My run fitness is not where it should be.

Event comments:

Good race - I beat my target time by 4min.
The strong swim and bike really made me happy. The run was so-so for me.
