75F / 24C
Total Time = 1h 45m 20s
Overall Rank = 73/404
Age Group = M25-29
Age Group Rank = 8/29
Pre-race routine:

Woke up. Hydrated. Ate. Drove to race venue.
Event warmup:

Setup transition, and then it started pouring. Stood in line for the TT start. No warmup.
  • 06m 56s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 35s / 100 yards

Would have been nice to have a slightly longer swim. TT start, surprised that I passed quite a few people, even one lady who was a few starters before me, had not yet started to swim when I got in the water.

People were on their backs before the first buoy.
What would you do differently?:

Swim faster. It was a fast split for me/
Transition 1
  • 02m 12s

Long run in, but I was right near the exit. It was pouring wet.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Hustle.
  • 59m 16s
  • 20.6 miles
  • 20.85 mile/hr

It was pouring. Stinging rain. I have never ridden in rain like that, so I just rode as hard as I could on the flats and took it very easy on the descents.
What would you do differently?:

Realize that the course was 20miles and not 24. I seriously thought it was 24 so I held back a bit.
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s

Still pouring. I had put my shoes in a plastic bag to keep them as dry as possible and wore laces today which slowed me down slightly.
What would you do differently?:

No laces. Had speed laces for tomorrow.
  • 35m 37s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 07s  min/mile

It was a great run, I took it easy for about the first mile and then tried to push, but did not find my legs until mile 3.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder earlier.
Post race
Warm down:

Muscle Milk. Stretch and wait for the massage people to setup. After hanging out for awhile we packed up and headed back to our hotel. Took a nap and woke up with the sun. Went out hiking for close to 3 hours and then hit up the pools for another few. Ate dinner. More beer. Went to sleep.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Rain on the bike. The fact that this was more vacation than race.

Event comments:

Awesome race, I really enjoyed racing in the rain. Great day hanging out.

Nice race.  I wondered if you got the rain.  Good job handling the bike even with rain and shortened course.  But you clearly had some good energy left for the run.  Great race overall.  Sorry I missed you.
