Set-Up Events
74F / 23C
Total Time = 1h 23m 25s
Overall Rank = 152/347
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 10/34
Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

Trying to stay dry under a tent until race time.
  • 11m 18s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 23s / 100 yards

Fairly shallow, many folks were wading to the finish with 50+ yards to go.
What would you do differently?:

Stood up to early (even though my hands were hitting the bottom during pull). Should have kept swimming instead of wading the last 20 yards.
Transition 1
  • 05m 15s

It's a long run from the swim finish to the transition area, so all T1 times for this race are big. Despite that, had issues (first time) getting wet stuit off, then had issues getting the bike off the rack. I'm not fast in transition, but this was rediculous.
  • 37m 42s
  • 12.4 miles
  • 19.73 mile/hr

Nice and comfortable. Didn't push the bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 50s

No issues. Anything under 2 minutes is good for me.
  • 27m 21s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 49s  min/mile

Ran comfortable without pushing it. Didn't realize how slow I was going until I finished.
What would you do differently?:

Wear my Garmin so I can track my pace.

Event comments:

Set Up Events puts on a good race and this was no exception. The rain was a pain in the butt, but stopped during the bike and run legs, which was nice. Overall, a very good sprint that I'd highly recommend. Thanks to all the volunteers who put up with the rain!!!
