Total Time = 1h 05m 47s
Overall Rank = 35/352
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 3/28
Pre-race routine:

Woke up. Ate PB&J, and sipped on Diet Mtn. Dew and G'ade while driving to the race. It was raining pretty hard with lightning on the way to the race.
Event warmup:

After setting up transition, I rode about 10 miles w/ some pickups, ran about 3 w/ pickups, and swam b/w 5 and 10 minutes.
  • 10m 6s
  • 528 yards
  • 01m 55s / 100 yards

I was really hoping to break 10'. No biggie.
What would you do differently?:

Keep swimming.
Transition 1
  • 01m 25s

Good transition.
  • 31m 29s
  • 12.8 miles
  • 24.39 mile/hr

I pushed the pace hard on the bike. Today was my fastest bike split at this course. I probably could have been a little faster if I wouldn't have been messing with my bike computer in the beginning of the bike leg. My speedo wouldn't come on and I wasted some time turning it off and on trying to get it to pick up.
What would you do differently?:

Keep pushing the pace/effort in training.
Transition 2
  • 00m 26s

Fastest in AG by over 10 seconds. Looking at the results it appears I was close to fastest of the day overall.
What would you do differently?:

Go faster
  • 22m 23s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 12s  min/mile

The run was overcast but humid. I was hoping to break 22' but it just didn't happen.
What would you do differently?:

Try to increase my focus on running.
Post race
Warm down:

Sat in the pond, ate some water melon, and drank some g'ade. After I cooled off I ran 3 miles w/ a friend.

Event comments:

Final race of the 2010 Charleston Triathlon Series. I raced in 3 of the five races in the series. I was lucky enough to podium in 2 of the 3 races.
