Overall Rank = 10/219 O

Age Group Rank = 1/11
Pre-race routine:

Had to leave super early for this one, loaded up Eolus, grabbed some shot bloks and water and actually got there pretty early, found transition, it was raining, but a beautiful drive, sun peaked out for a second, saw more or less the sun come up...
Event warmup:

Ran just over a mile, swam about 125 yards, had plenty of time before my start...
  • 07m 37s
  • 450 yards
  • 01m 41s / 100 yards

Great swim for me, really thought I pounded it, got passed by a really fast girl, but otherwise held my own, really killed it, still not that fast though, tired at the end
What would you do differently?:

Train more, get a coach, and lose weight
Transition 1
  • 01m 9s

Ok transition, it was cold as fuck outside, really hit me, hard getting into shows, and then onto the bike, slow for me
What would you do differently?:

I don't know, it was too cold to go fast I feel like
  • 35m 37s
  • 13 miles
  • 21.90 mile/hr

Killed the bike, didn't get passed at all, passed some fast as shit bikes, still was 8th, wonder if I had sweet wheels or was warmer how I could have done, winner was just under 4 minutes faster (beat them overall)
What would you do differently?:

Lose weight, better equipment...
Transition 2
  • 01m 6s

Thought this was faster than it was, had a little trouble in my racking position I guess...good into the run though
What would you do differently?:

I don't know I need coaching on this...
  • 21m 9s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 03s  min/mile

Felt really strong on the run, got passed by someone, but he was hauling, so no biggie, felt awesome, probably would have broke 22 if it was a true 5k
What would you do differently?:

Lose weight, that's it...
Post race
Warm down:

Didn't really warm down, super freezing, grabbe an amazing shower, like 45 minutes, it was incredible...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight, equipment, mental effort on the run..

Event comments:

A good race, but overall not that awesome, maybe would have been better without the weather, everything seemed a little thrown together, except for the courses, those were great, but no awards afterward or results posted. A Mom n Pop C-level race...not a lot of elites out there...probably why I did so well...

10/98 for males...10.2%
