Quakertown, Pennsylvania
United States
80F / 27C
Total Time = 2h 45m 25s
Overall Rank = 179/356
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 29/45
Event warmup:

5 minutes light jogging
  • 24m 52s
  • 1750 yards
  • 01m 25s / 100 yards

Should have been more agressive. Spent too much time trying to swim around people or reposition. Should have established my position and just go hard.

Transition 1
  • 04m 5s

Lost a lot of time here. Indecision on what I wanted to wear on the bike. When I put on the bike jersey the zipper wasn't working so just decided to put on my running shirt. Definitely lost a lot of time here.
What would you do differently?:

Make a descision what to where before the race and bring only whats needed to the transistion area. Need to consider buying bike shoes that do not need to be tied.
  • 1h 21m 2s
  • 24.6 miles
  • 18.21 mile/hr

I was surprised how poorly I did. Really didn't seem like that many people passed me. I guess I just need to push harder on the bike
Transition 2
  • 02m 19s
What would you do differently?:

Again - Probably need to invest in bike shoes that do not need to be tied
  • 53m 10s
