Pre-race routine:

Up at 3:30am. Cup of coffee, walk Squid and out the door.
  • 08m 56s
  • 400 yards
  • 02m 14s / 100 yards

Loved the swim. Felt a little disoriented when coming out of the water, but nothing too bad. Didn't know what to expect since this was my first, but felt I did really well.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m 7s

This went well. A little frantic, but I remembered everything and was glad I had practiced. It was a long run from the beach to the transition area and I didn't run much.
What would you do differently?:

could have run more
  • 38m 38s
  • 11.5 miles
  • 17.86 mile/hr

Loved the bike. Held back some because I was afraid of tiring my legs for the run. My legs felt great going into the run. NO pain.
What would you do differently?:

Go all out. Since running is my weakest sport I should push on bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 43s

Did well
What would you do differently?:

Drink more.
  • 39m 6s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 12m 34s  min/mile

Not enough drink stations. 1st one was right out of transition and the next one wasn't for 2 miles. I was VERY thirsty. I did really poorly. I was huffing and puffing and just gave up. Need to quiet the negative thoughts and learn some breathing techniques.
What would you do differently?:

Lots of practice with pace. Wear water belt.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I didn't run, I walked. Could have pushed harder, but just gave up.
