Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

  • 23m 35s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 52s  min/mile

seriously, out of 16 people in my age group, all but one puts down a sub 8min mile? that's unheard of. i just came off a cold and well undertrained and i somehow pull out a sub 8mm, and i'm 2nd to last.

i'm happy with it regardless. i would have been happy with a 830mile so under 8 was like christmas.
What would you do differently?:

run faster dammit
Transition 1
  • 01m 3s

pulled over next to bike rack and blew a giant snot rocket over the t1 barrier.
What would you do differently?:

  • 48m 27s
  • 15 miles
  • 18.58 mile/hr

been on the bike about 4 times since august so i wasn't expecting much. i had a few mtb rides around the holiday, but i was really unprepared for this bike ride. still had fun though even though i was blowing snot rockets about every half mile. gross. took one gel abt mile 13.
What would you do differently?:

nothing. just too weak on the bike to do much else.
Transition 2
  • 00m 54s

never did t2 with socks on before. the velcro from the shoes sticks to the socks. that sucked. kind of freaked me off for a second when getting out of the shoes coming into t2. it was fine though. didn't really make any difference.

more snot rockets over the fence.
  • 16m 1s
  • 2 miles
  • 08m 01s  min/mile

again, all but 1 person with <=8mm. stiff competition out there...

legs felt ok off the bike. haven't had a real brick in a long time. the heavyness wore off quick.
