Guntersville, Alabama
Team Magic
83F / 28C
Total Time = 1h 46m 52s
Overall Rank = /800
Age Group = Cly/Athena
Age Group Rank = 69/81
Pre-race routine:

Drove down that morning. Got up at 4:05. Long drive 1 1/2 hour. Got there registered and set up transition.
Event warmup:

Stretch, Prayer, and light jog
  • 15m 15s
  • 600 yards
  • 02m 32s / 100 yards

People were stopping and clogging up the lines. Many people crowed. I got kicked more than if it had been a shot gun start. The water was very merky and sea weed.
What would you do differently?:

Start with the swimmers that do not need to stop. Get a better draft.
Transition 1
  • 03m 38s

Could not get my heart rate monitor belt on. This was s slower tranistion than I needed.
  • 50m 8s
  • 16.2 miles
  • 19.39 mile/hr

Good bike. Had some trouble getting in the pedal at the start. Could have maybe pushed harder.
Transition 2
  • 02m 25s

I went to the wrong rack and then had to go back down an aisle.
What would you do differently?:

The racks were crowed and this lead to not finding area easy. I would have used side walk chalk to mark my spots.
  • 35m 28s
  • 3 miles
  • 11m 49s  min/mile

Need to run, run, run. I used the run walk method but I believe that this is mental because I feel that I could push harder.
What would you do differently?:

Spend an extra two hours a week training for the run. Faster than last year.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked about a .25 of a mile. Stretched and drank two bottled waters

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My mental focus and I nned to push till it hurts.

Event comments:

I meet one of my short-term goals by beating last years record by 14+ minutes.
