Irving, Texas
United States
85F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 18m 30s
Overall Rank = 89/272
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 16/29
  • 12m 19s
  • 547 yards
  • 02m 15s / 100 yards

I was never comfortable in this swim, and I'm not sure why. My pace was bad, my form was off...just a bad day in the water.
Transition 1
  • 01m 33s

The transition area for this race is very odd. It's on the side of a hill & the racks are placed all over. They tried to organize it, but I think it's just a bad spot to place the transition area.
  • 34m 55s
  • 12.19 miles
  • 20.95 mile/hr

I pretty much knocked this one out of the park; it helps that this is area I'm familiar with from the DA group rides. No complaints here.
Transition 2
  • 01m 31s
  • 28m 9s
  • 3.23 miles
  • 08m 43s  min/mile

I just kept pushing the whole time, trying to get max effort in. It worked out fairly well, though I had a hard time staying cool because of the heat.

Event comments:

If they had a better transition area, I'd rate this race higher. It's the only real negative I have about the race though, overall Playtri does a good job.

Dude, your swim sucked because you are slow. Face it, even if you were "comfortable" you're still slow. Lessons. Practice. Train.

T1 = 1:33. WTF! I could remodel my house in a minute freakin' 33. Are you styling or what?

Bike = Sub 21 and you call that knockin' it out of the park?? Maybe a Little League park where I grew up and we dint have no money for a real field.

T2 = No comment because you were only 2 seconds (2!!!!) faster than T1. How long does it take you to change shoes? A long time I'm guessing... 1st shoe, 2nd shoe, should be 30-40 seconds, tops.

Run = Pffft, 8:43 miles; that's pushing max effort? Fail. Yeah, it is hard to stay cool when it's heat. It's AUGUST in TX. Surprise!

That's it; blame it on the TA layout, that's what I'd do...
