Pre-race routine:

Arrive early, set-up, wait by the start.
Event warmup:

  • 08m 16s
  • 400 yards
  • 02m 04s / 100 yards

Largest start so far. All males 39 and under started together. Picked good line to first turn, didn't get caught up in the mass of bodies at the bouy.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 28s

Long run to T1 through parking lot.
What would you do differently?:

Get tri shoes.
  • 38m 47s
  • 13 miles
  • 20.11 mile/hr

Overall not too bad, played around with my gears a lot in order to keep cadence steady. Glad I scouted out the course prior to race.
What would you do differently?:

Took feet out of shoes too soon on return, need to find landmark 1/4 mile from T2.
Transition 2
  • 00m 35s

Had to wipe feet off on towel because of the amount of gravel & shell sticking to them.
What would you do differently?:

  • 26m 11s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 27s  min/mile

Felt slow! Only got passed by a few and passed the guy I beat a half mile from the finish line.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more on the bike, but felt nauseous near end of ride.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Started to feel sick to my stomach the last 3 miles of the bike ride, skipped my GU at the 45 minute mark. Need to eat better the day before.

Event comments:

Good race although I probably will not do it again.
