Baraboo, Wisconsin
United States
Wisconsin Triathlon Series
43F / 6C
Total Time = 1h 46m 51s
Overall Rank = 303/549
Age Group = M-NOV
Age Group Rank = 17/62
Event warmup:

Some running to get the legs warmed up, arm circles to get the arms warm. No swim warmup since the air temp was so cold.
  • 09m 44s
  • 481 yards
  • 02m 01s / 100 yards
What would you do differently?:

My sighting was terrible. I swam WAY off course, out towards the middle of the lake rather than staying tight to the bouys. I need to sight more frequently since there are no lane lines in open water. :)
Transition 1
  • 03m 37s

It was a long run into transition with some rough ground and tree roots in the path. The race volunteers were great though, pointing everything out as you ran by.
What would you do differently?:

The wetsuit got stuck on my big ol' feet so more bodyglide needed on my heel next time.
  • 1h 05m 36s
  • 15 miles
  • 13.72 mile/hr

A very safe and well organized bike course. Every intersection had volunteers and a Sheriff controlling traffic.

The rain definitely played a factor towards the end of the ride. The last decent was sketchy, a few people went down.
What would you do differently?:

Train on more hills, maybe drink a little more towards the beginning of the bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 57s
  • 25m 57s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 39s  min/mile

I cramped a bit at the beginning of the run, but pushed through. I could have pushed harder but I'm happy with the result.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe push a little harder, I know I'm capable of sub 8 minute pace for a 5K. But I'm still happy with my result.
Post race
Warm down:

Lots of walking and getting warm, dry clothes on. Ate some pasta and a shredded chicken sandwich that was provided. Pretty good stuff. Went and got a hot chocolate.

Event comments:

A super race with very friendly staff and volunteers. The course was well marked and I felt very safe during the entire race. I will definitely be doing more WI Tri Series races in the future.
