Total Time = 1h 54m 12s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = Male 40+ Clydes
Age Group Rank = 17/17
Pre-race routine:

Got up and had a "high carb" breakfast at the hotel, a few breads and a banana. Got Body Marked and checked on Bike and placed camel back on bike etc.
Event warmup:

Putting on wet suit. Really couldn't swim in advance, and being my first tri I wasn't up for being too far away from the start.
  • 12m 3s
  • 547 yards
  • 02m 12s / 100 yards
What would you do differently?:

Get to the water sooner, and go a little slower. I was worn out on the way to T1.
Transition 1
  • 05m 20s

Was a long distance (2 blocks) from water to transition.
What would you do differently?:

I walked most of the transition a bit out of breath. Would have been better to get out of the water a minute later and jog to T1.
  • 1h 01m 16s
  • 12 miles
  • 11.75 mile/hr

I was riding the wrong bike in the wrong fit.
What would you do differently?:

Already done, I have a new bike now.
Transition 2
  • 01m 34s

Using my running shoes for biking so no issues there.
What would you do differently?:

I thought it went fairly well for my first race.
  • 33m 57s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 57s  min/mile

One of the first times I managed to run a 5k without stopping... not bad considering the previous 1.5 hours.
What would you do differently?:

Water/aide was every 1 mile. Should have gotten the aide stuff at T2 and then gotten water at the first mile. If water was any farther apart I should have taken some with me.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mostly my bike, inexperience, and a touch of panic in the water.
