Pre-race routine:

Wake up 5:30 (race starts at 8:00), get final things ready. At race: unload equipment, set up transition area, go get marked and chip. Warm-up a little, talk with friends. . . just enjoy the experience.
Event warmup:

Ran a little, not much and did a short swim.
  • 07m 47s
  • 500 yards
  • 01m 34s / 100 yards

This is my strongest leg. :)
What would you do differently?:

Not much. . .maybe bring my own bouys because the course was not marked very well.
Transition 1
  • 01m 13s

Decent transition. . .
What would you do differently?:

not much
  • 44m 29s
  • 12 miles
  • 16.19 mile/hr

Well . . on mile 7 I had a flat. A nail/tack was sticking out of my tire. . so needless to say this pretty much ruined my bike segment. I don't take spare tube/tools/co2 on short course so rode 5 miles on flat tire. Of course this was after I was off the bike for 5 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong.
What would you do differently?:

Uhm. . . not get a flat?
Transition 2
  • 01m 44s

What would you do differently?:

At this point my race was over. . .but finished it out anyway.
  • 23m 47s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 56s  min/mile

Run felt a lot better than in past triathlons. This may have been due to the fact that I got a flat on the bike and needed to make up time or was a little more rested.
What would you do differently?:

Just try and run harder.
Post race
Warm down:

Water and Gatorade

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Flat tire

Event comments:

Overall it would have been an awesome race. I was flying on the bike till I got the flat and then it was not so much fun for the next 5 miles. Run was good.
