Pre-race routine:

Left house at 5:15 after eating yogurt and scone. Checked in, got chip and body marking and set up transition area with time to spare for a five minute warm-up.
Event warmup:

Five minute easy warmup in the lake.
  • 34m 2s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 04s / 100 yards

Took it real easy and actually enjoyed the swim. Very clean race, contact wise.
What would you do differently?:

I could have gone harder, left a fair amount on the table.
Transition 1
  • 01m 27s

Decent transition
What would you do differently?:

Not much - felt this went well.
  • 1h 09m 8s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 21.57 mile/hr

Felt like it was a good ride. Course was pretty bumpy in spots. Hills were fair.
What would you do differently?:

Pretty good ride, but could have gone harder
Transition 2
  • 02m 20s

Couldn't find my damn bike rack! Poor scouting on my part, was looking on the wrong side of the transition area.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure I know beforehand where I need to go for my bike rack. That should have been in my head before the race even started. Stupid.
  • 46m 12s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 26s  min/mile

Developed a bad stitch in my side which caused me to walk twice. Not very happy about it. Otherwise, run was decent.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure - nothing I could do about the pain in my side.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Stupidity in T2, stitch in my side during the run.

Event comments:

Very well run race for a first time event. They might be able to re-route the run to make it a little less hilly. Two of the hills were very challenging.
