Overall Rank = 205/396

Pre-race routine:

Got to the race late, as I slept through my alarm! Rushed around, but had enough time to get setup.
Event warmup:

Running around taking care of everything.
  • 16m
  • 500 yards
  • 03m 12s / 100 yards

Jesus I suck at swimming. Maybe I'll get better at it at some point, but I have some issues.
What would you do differently?:

Rented a jet ski.
Transition 1
  • 03m 27s

Had problems clipping in because my legs were tired and jello-y.
What would you do differently?:

Get some real triathlon biking shoes so I can run and jump and all that fancy stuff.
  • 40m 7s
  • 11.75 miles
  • 17.57 mile/hr

I didn't really find a decent rhythm until late in the course. I passed a LOT more people than I was passed by, but just didn't feel that strong. I'm not looking forward to seeing what my avg speed was.
What would you do differently?:

Dose with EPO, and maybe train a bit more? I laid off the bike for the last two weeks and concentrated on run/swim.
Transition 2
  • 01m 22s

People were stopping like 10 yards in front of the dismount line. Not sure why they were doing that. Ride it to the line!
What would you do differently?:

Run people over so I can dismount at the line.
  • 28m 58s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 40s  min/mile

I tried to start slow and let my legs warmup, and that seemed to work well for me. I'm not a fast runner, but I ran the whole time and that was my primary goal out of this triathlon. Pretty pleased with the run, although my calves are pretty grumpy today.

Instead of drinking a lot, I just took a sip of water and then dumped the water on my core, and then another cup on my head.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really. Pleased with run performance.
Post race
Warm down:

Drank a lot, then thanked everyone who supported me then got the hell out of dodge.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of training

Event comments:

Organizer went over everything about the course before the swim and made sure everyone knew what to expect.
Made accommodations for my late arrival.

Still waiting on results...
No post-race activities...
No post-race awards...
No signage for run turnaround...
