Pre-race routine:

Stretching and foam rolling, 2 cups of coffee and 2 sandwiches with nutella.
Event warmup:

very short splash in the water
  • 11m 37s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 38s / 100 yards

It's official... I can't swim, yet I did finish!!!
Transition 1
  • 03m 17s

Wetsuit got stuck on timing chip, but otherwise everything went ok.
  • 59m 25s
  • 21 miles
  • 21.21 mile/hr

Enjoyed the hill on the way back, but need to improve W/kg to be make up some time.
Transition 2
  • 01m 25s

Almost overshot the dismount line... a painted pale yellow line when you're having the sun right in your eyes is just not clear enough.
What would you do differently?:

Scoped out the bike transition area before the race.
  • 36m 10s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 14s  min/mile

Felt a bit heavy the first mile and had some issues with my Garmin (hit stop instead of lap after T2...)
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

insufficient training

Event comments:

This was my first triathlon ever, so I have to be quite content with the result. There's plenty of room to improve so next year should be even better

Lots of people asked me about my disc...


The decal is made by Tai Blechet (a triathlete and graphic designer from Hawaii) at I have no affiliation with his company, but just very happy with the work he does for reasonable money
