Total Time = 1h 15m 43s
Overall Rank = 8/138
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 2/13
Pre-race routine:

Drove over and registered.
Event warmup:

Coulpe of miles on bike, ran 1 mile and swam just to get used to cold water
  • 05m 49s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 19s / 100 yards

Good swim for me. Second out of the water in the elite wave 4th overall. Not too bad for an old fart.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 00m 35s

Fastest in T1 so very pleased esp. with full suit.
What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 37s
  • 14.5 miles
  • 20.91 mile/hr

Not thrilled with pace today. No excuses with weather perfect. Perhaps I should not do the elite wave bc. only was passed twice and really didn't see anyone else except on the way back in. No one to push me and no carrot to chace.
Transition 2
  • 00m 26s

Good time, nothing to change
  • 27m 18s
  • 3.7 miles
  • 07m 23s  min/mile

I passed one of the two that got me on the bike and was passed by two young men that run cross country at their schools. Too bad you can't buy youth!
Good run but same as with the bike I was generally alone and I know I could do better if I was pushed.
What would you do differently?:

Go in the age group wave.
Post race
Warm down:

Met up with a friend I made last year. He took 1st in his age group and me 2nd so we hung around for the awards.
Beautiful day, must admit I am glad the studs stayed home as last year I was a little faster and took 4th AG. The overall winner, 43 from Chicago could stay home next year,jk, he did it in 1:02:13! Crazy fast!

Event comments:

Nice day, met some friends, had some fun after my worst 1/2 Iron ever last week.
