84F / 29C
Total Time = 2h 16m 50s
Overall Rank = 52/705
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 5/76
Event warmup:

ran the beach, swam to first buoy
  • 25m 43s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 34s / 100 yards

nice swim, got a bit off course following a group that went into the return side. quickly swam back over to avoid collision!
Transition 1
  • 02m 12s

slow disorientated in the transition maze
What would you do differently?:

take a bit more time to check the swim in, bike out and run out. transition was a bit chaotic.
  • 1h 03m 58s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 23.31 mile/hr

felt a bit wasted on the bike for some reason, had a hard time getting full power. pushed as well as I could.
Transition 2
  • 01m 28s

better than T1...
  • 43m 31s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 01s  min/mile

had quadricep pain on the first mile or two (funny I wrote the same thing last year), but started to feel better after that. choked on some of the aid station water which was full of ice. anyway, wound up with a decent run. stomach was feeling strange, maybe a bit too much gatorade on the bike.
Post race
Warm down:

walked around for quite awhile. quads sore.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not sure at this stage, went as hard as I could. PR'd by 11 minutes.

Event comments:

Fun race. Excellent weather. Was a fast day.

yah, weather was amazing. I was a little confused why my legs didn't want to push the bike hard. I felt like you described in your report...just didn't have the full power for some reason.  Felt generally ok on the run, but never felt totally in the groove for most of the race.
