Pre-race routine:

Drank shake and ate a bag of grapes. Rounded up all the kids and in the van for the 1 hour drive by 5:30am.
Event warmup:

Light jog.
  • 07m 17s
  • 528 yards
  • 01m 23s / 100 yards

Swim went well. Dolphin dived for a long ways starting and finishing since it was so shallow.
Transition 1
  • 01m 48s

Kindof a disaster transition, didn't know where I was going out of the water, volunteer didn't correctly direct me etc...

Probably could have been 15 secs faster if I had known what was going on:-)
What would you do differently?:

Know where swim in is for transition!
  • 33m 58s
  • 13 miles
  • 22.96 mile/hr

Good bike. Just pushed the pace and tried to go as hard as I could. Didn't want to get passed while on the bike and suceeded!
Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

Good T2. 10 fastest t2 time:-)
  • 18m 20s
  • 3 miles
  • 06m 07s  min/mile

I ran a bit slow on this one, I messed up timing with my Garmin and it threw me off mentally a bit. I was just running hard and it was hot. I should have easily been under 6 minute miles.

Event comments:

I really liked this race. Best post-race food ever... breakfast burritos that were huge and FILLING!!! Really well organized event and a smaller one that the entire family can have an amazing time at. Great race. Definitely will do more Optum races.
