Total Time = 00m
Overall Rank = 33/338
Age Group = M25-29
Age Group Rank = 5/14
Pre-race routine:

Woke up. Ate. Coffee. Hydrate. Drove to the race.
Event warmup:

Setup transition. Some easy jogging.
  • 07m 37s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 44s / 100 yards

I thought I swam better today than yesterday, but fatigue must have been showing.
What would you do differently?:

Swim harder.
Transition 1
  • 01m 19s

Way faster than yesterday.
What would you do differently?:

  • 46m 9s
  • 16 miles
  • 20.80 mile/hr

I could feel the past two days taking their toll. The bike segment today did not feel any shorter than yesterday.
What would you do differently?:

Ride harder. Not have a fun day yesterday
Transition 2
  • 01m 6s

No laces makes a difference. No rain also helps.
What would you do differently?:

  • 21m 20s
  • 3.4 miles
  • 06m 16s  min/mile

Fast I guess. Garmin measured the course short a bit. I left transition with another guy, I was announced leaving as was he, they said he had won two local road races. He took off and was gone. I saw a few leaders on their way back in, and chased down 1 guy early otherwise I just ran alone.

It is far easier to chase.

I was maybe 20th OA to finish.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster.
Post race
Warm down:

Muscle Milk. Waited for volunteers to leave massage tent so I could get in. Hung out ate food. Went back to the hotel. My girlfriend and daughter hit up the pool while I packed. Then drove home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

This was a C-series for me. I had an awesome time, and would love to race it again. Tons of fun, but more vacation than race. I had almost 2 beers each day, pizza Friday night and random food Saturday.

I was also swimming and hiking with my daughter. I was not as serious as the overall winners.

As a result it was some of the best racing I have ever had. I was 24th started each day and got to chase down a few people each day and had a few people pass on the bike. It was nice to race at the pointy end of the field, I could not imagine starting later on.

Event comments:

Plan on returning next year.

Good finish to a crazy weekend.  Awesome run as the last leg of a tri-tri.  The bike felt the same as the International, but that's a nice power output.
