Pre-race routine:

Out of bed at 355 am. Showered to wake up. Ate half a brownie and dranks some water. 55 minute ride in with my daughter.
Arrived and set up transition- First race for my daughter Mandi.

This was my first "NO RED BULL" before the race. Seemed fine
Event warmup:

I swam about 50 yards and then was ready to race
  • 14m
  • 400 yards
  • 03m 30s / 100 yards

I never seemed to get my breathing down so I was taking a breath every right stroke. I thought the swim was going to be lame but I was pleased. I had myself finished in 11 minutes but then we had a long run out on an asphault sidewalk to T-1. Hard on a big guy with foot issues.
What would you do differently?:

I need to practice more.
Transition 1
  • 03m 34s

See comments above about the running on asphault
  • 1h 04m 7s
  • 16 miles
  • 14.97 mile/hr

This was a typical GA ride with rolling hills.
What would you do differently?:

More time on the bike
Transition 2
  • 01m 10s

Off the bike and ran across parking lot to Mandi. She grabbed the time chip and took off. Pretty fast
  • 37m 47s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 12m 09s  min/mile

Mandi ran the 5K and did a good job.

I think there was much confusion on the route with the two lap and turn around point. Some of these times are a little suspect
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around. Ate some good food, picked up the race shirts and went home

Event comments:

Good race. Looking forward to coming back next year.
