Asbury Patk, New Jersey
United States
66F / 19C
Total Time = 1h 06m 59s
Overall Rank = 18/275
Age Group = M 20-24
Age Group Rank = 3/17
Pre-race routine:

Up at 4:30 to head to transition and pick up packet. Banana, PowerBar, Red Bull, and a couple sips of gatorade
Event warmup:

Lite stretching and easy 50 yard swim.
  • 07m 18s
  • 587 yards
  • 01m 14s / 100 yards

Felt great for the first 300 yards or so. After that my arms started to get tired and was just punishing myself to the end.
Transition 1
  • 00m 48s

Didnt have any problems getting wetsuit off. It was a long run to the transition. My feet didnt slip into the shoes as easily as normal but didnt cost me any time.
  • 37m 59s
  • 15 miles
  • 23.69 mile/hr

Potholes and cracks in road made for a rough ride! I was expecting much better since it was a flat course with 2 laps. Definitely need to invest in speed bottle or something so I can take in more water and hydrate before the run.
Transition 2
  • 00m 36s

Someone piled all there crap on my shoes and race belt and I couldnt find them at first. So took me a little longer than I wanted.
  • 20m 17s
  • 3 miles
  • 06m 46s  min/mile

Need to take in more water before. The first mile I had trouble breathing until I got to the first water station then I felt good after that. Could push myself more. I got in a groove and stayed there but felt like I had some left when I got to the end.
