Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
United States
85F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 53m 41s
Overall Rank = 478/1000
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 74/129
Pre-race routine:

Woke up around 5, had a cup of coffee and some oatmeal for breakfast. Loaded the car and left the house around 6. Got to the race site and had about 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot. Set up transition, hung out with John, chatted with my aunt (doing the run for a relay) and found some of the ladies from my tri club.
Event warmup:

Did some stretching, nothing crazy.
  • 14m 2s
  • 600 meters
  • 02m 20s / 100 meters

Swim was better than I expected. I have not done any OWS this year so I was kinda nervous.
What would you do differently?:

Swim more and get in some OWS with the tri club. Also I hung back some and then started. I would not do that again if I do SheRox next year. I kept getting boxed in by a few swimmers who kept doing breaststroke. I got kicked in the chest a few times too.
Transition 1
  • 02m 10s

My rack in transition was at a good spot to find.
  • 1h 04m 30s
  • 15.53 miles
  • 14.45 mile/hr

I know I need to bike more but I also felt as though my bike was holding me back.
What would you do differently?:

Need to bike more! Hoping to have a road bike by the end of the month too.
Transition 2
  • 01m 30s
  • 31m 26s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 07s  min/mile

Most of my training has been running since I decided just a few weeks out to do this tri. I have been focused on the Philly marathon. I was pleased with my run. I know I am not a fast runner and this pace was really good for me after swimming and biking.
What would you do differently?:

Work on getting faster
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing specific. Found John and hung out with a few friends before they opened up transition. Grabbed something to drink. Grabbed my stuff and got out of there before the skies opened up!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not training the best for a tri
