Moses Lake, Washington
United States
73F / 23C
Total Time = 2h 18m 49s
Overall Rank = 49/132
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 7/8
Pre-race routine:

I woke up at 5:15 and ate my normal breakfast, milk and cereal. Then on the way about an hour and a half before the race I had a banana and protein drink from odwala
Event warmup:

I showed up 45 minutes early to pick up my packet and that was not enough time. I made sure to warm up and stretch my calf for the race but only got a short swim in before the race.
  • 21m 58s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 20s / 100 yards

It was a short course as you can see by the times but all in all without a warm up I am satisfied.
What would you do differently?:

Get a warm-up swim
Transition 1
  • 00m 53s

First time using a triathlon suit and wetsuit, it was nice not putting on clothing while still wet. Easy to get out of the wetsuit fast.
  • 1h 07m 29s
  • 22 miles
  • 19.56 mile/hr

My HR was out of this world and I was surprised how high it was out of transition (210-225) I'm not sure if it was my HR monitor, I replaced the batteries within a week. My HR returned to the 155-160 range after a few miles and I maintained a steady pace. Dominated people on the hills with my extensive gear range.
What would you do differently?:

Be a stronger biker
Transition 2
  • 01m 11s

It was the easiest transition I've ever had
  • 47m 18s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 37s  min/mile

This was a serious challenge after pushing hard, but not too much on the bike. I got blisters in two spots on both feet. Shoes were super hot too!
What would you do differently?:

Get different shoes, maybe sockless
Post race
Warm down:

walk around and get food/drink. Headed to the lake to cool down and do some stretching in non blister bearing environment. Followed by more nutrition and stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not having speed on the run and bike like I hoped
