250 yard swim warm up in the pool, great relaxing warmup and it helped to loosen my back up before the race. Been having muscle spasms all week.

i was cornering aggressively, except for the one corner that it was too tight and dangerous to do so. I had a great time and passed a fair amount of people on the bike. I may have gone out a tad too hard on the bike, but I don't care. I was having fun and that is all that matters.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 48s

great transition. quick in and out.
What would you do differently?:

I hate running but it was still my best run leg ever in a tri and I will take it. GLADLY!!
What would you do differently?:

Not a darn thing
Post race
Warm down:

Jogging with my friend Sandra as she headed out on the run and lots of stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

being only 2 weeks out from the last race and cycling 25 miles yesterday.

Event comments:

Only change I would make would be a water station as you head out on the run, there was no water at the point I wanted a little to wet my mouth and pour over my head. Otherwise, the only thing I would change would be two of the hills on the bike course. I knew going out that the way back in would be painful.

I set three PR's and had a great time in support of my friend. I couldn't ask for a better race.
