did not navigate well. I was not ready for not being able to see when I put my head in the water.
What would you do differently?:

I would start a little further to the right of the field. I would go faster over the waves. I would sight better. I would try to not get pushed to the left too far so that I have to go back out and around the buoy. I would really try to bare down the straight away. I must practice this open water swim.
Transition 1
  • 02m 33s

T-1 was a long run up the beach but I felt like to did this well. I stayed with a pack of people and tried to catch my breath after the swim.
What would you do differently?:

  • 38m 43s
  • 13 miles
  • 20.15 mile/hr

I pushed hard on the bike. I really felt like I did as good as I could do at this point in my racing career. I felt strong throughout the bike. Overall a good performance for me.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

This transition was fast for me. I made up some time here. I was 3rd in my age group so it really helped me.
What would you do differently?:

  • 25m 38s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 32s  min/mile

I felt good and strong. I should have gone out a little harder in the beginning here. I do feel that the course was longer.
What would you do differently?:

Go out a little harder in the beginning.
Post race
Warm down:

ate good, hydrated good, and talked with Jeff Bates.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

the swim was very tough. I really feel like I could shave time off here. I think more training on the bike is necessary.

Event comments:

Very well done. Lots o volunteers and the course was marked very well. The instructions on the email we received said to pick up the packets on race day at a bike shop. This needs to be changed because packet pick up was at the race site. This caused us to be a few minutes late.
