Halfmoon, New York
United States
Total Time = 1h 25m 58s
Overall Rank = 36/132
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 4/6
Event warmup:

Ran around a little bit but that's it. Just trying to get the legs loose.
  • 17m
  • 2.2 miles
  • 07m 44s  min/mile

Didn't want to break out too fast but may have left a little too much in the tank for the rest of the race.

The hill was brutal in the run. 1/4" uphill that peaked at a 20° grade.
What would you do differently?:

Push a little harder.
Transition 1
  • 00m

No times.

Threw my bike shoe which added a few seconds but other than that, went smooth.
What would you do differently?:

Not happy about having to stop and put my shoes on and then get on the bike slowly. Need to work on that transition.
  • 50m 41s
  • 16 miles
  • 18.94 mile/hr

Really started to fade at the end which killed my time. Was riding with a women the entire race (back and forth) and she took off the last 2 miles or so.
What would you do differently?:

Not break out so fast.
Spend more time in the aerobars.
Transition 2
  • 00m

No times.

I thought my transition was fairly smooth with this. There wasn't a whole lot to do and I only had about 10' to my rack point so that was good.
  • 18m 18s
  • 2.2 miles
  • 08m 19s  min/mile

This run hurt...a lot. The hill was completely retarded. I felt like I could have walked faster but I told myself no walking...just go.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder once to the top of the hill. I forgot how much was downhill after that. Could have cut some time off with that and just gone harder at the end.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

First run could have gone a bit harder and my first transition was a little rough.

Event comments:

It's so low key that the awards ceremony started an hour later...annoying but not bad.

I liked it being so low key for my first event, will do again next year.
