Overall Rank = /
Age Group = F40-44
Age Group Rank = 36/68
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 6 am, had coffee and an english muffin with peanut butter and honey, went with my husband, FIL, his GF to the race. Met up with T and K there.
Event warmup:

Walking around- very warm even in the morning. Had a banana at 8, and a gel and 8:30, and drank water.
  • 17m 33s
  • 820 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards

I caught my toenail (already threatening to come off) on someone as I swam to the start, and I could feel it fluttering and pulling while I was kicking. Very icky. But this was actually a faster swim than last year, even though I have swum twice since Fingerlakes in September.
What would you do differently?:

Train more
Transition 1
  • 02m 49s

Had to take a little extra time to pull off the toenail- fortunately it was just attached by a little bit of cuticle.
  • 58m 16s
  • 16.1 miles
  • 16.58 mile/hr

My cycle computer wasn't picking up the wheel so I had no idea how fast I was going. I feel pretty good about this bike- very similar time to last year, but more left for the run. Had a gel about 15 minutes into the bike. Drank 1 bottle of water. I'm definately more comfortable going aero, which helps also.
What would you do differently?:

Train more
Transition 2
  • 01m 55s
What would you do differently?:

need to get speed laces
  • 28m 50s
  • 3.2 miles
  • 09m 01s  min/mile

I didn't have my Garmin so I didn't know my pace- i think it worked out ok though- I'm very happy with this, especially given that I haven't been training much (especially intervals).
What would you do differently?:

Train more, but I'm happy with this. And lose 5 pounds!
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and waited for the others to come in. It took awhile and I didn't have a chance to look for the BTers!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training, as usual

Event comments:

Great race- could have more water though...

Nice race!

Funny about the nail in T1!

Too bad we didn't get to meet up again this year!

Nice race - looks like we finished right about the same time out of the same wave.  I must have seen you out there!
