Pre-race routine:

Not much really. Lots of IM hanging out
Event warmup:

  • 1h 30m 34s
  • 4224 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards

Swam 50 min on lap one, 40 on lap 2. REALLY can start better and further up in pack. Didnt mind the total time at all and was never breathing hard.
What would you do differently?:

Better start, get to inside.
Transition 1
  • 08m 1s

IM transition..nuff said.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really. Move a little quicker if my time really mattered.
  • 6h 15m 14s
  • 112 miles
  • 17.91 mile/hr

Good lap 1, maybe too fast?
What would you do differently?:

Train harder
Transition 2
  • 04m 1s

IM transition. Nothing to change
  • 5h 05m 50s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 11m 40s  min/mile

LOL...this is where the wheels fell off. (As expected)
My first IM and I was fine pacing with walking up hills, trotting and jogging down and flats etc. Wanted to make sure i got the T shirt!
Actually finished running the last mile at decent pace.
What would you do differently?:

Work on running. Train harder. Dont be a pussy!
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of conditioning for this. Learning experience I guess. Hit my expected time right on though.

Event comments:

Glad I got an IM completed. Now know what they're about. What a cool event!
If I do another, i'll shoot to break 12 hrs. Just wanted to be SURE to not BONK on this one and ran right on my numbers all day. Finished feeling good with no physical issues either...Just a little slow.
