Total Time = 1h 03m 23s
Overall Rank = 9/138
Age Group = 55-59
Age Group Rank = 2/6
Pre-race routine:

Up at 4:15. Oatmeal, coffee, juice. Left for E-burg at about 5:15, arriving at 6:50
Event warmup:

Ran about a half mile easy
  • 06m 3s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 23s / 100 yards

A good swim. Hard to think I could do much better
What would you do differently?:

Maybe pushed a little too hard. Out of gas during transition
Transition 1
  • 01m 8s

Struggled a little with it stuck on my timing chip on the ankle.
What would you do differently?:

Just push harder
  • 36m 17s
  • 13.75 miles
  • 22.74 mile/hr

The gradual grade was very deceptive. You really don't even see it, but it's there. Add a little headwind and I struggled to maintain 17 mph. I was happy to finish at an average of nearly 23.
What would you do differently?:

Keep practicing on the bike.
Transition 2
  • 00m 53s

Still struggled with the 2nd transition. Poor effort to hit 74th.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure. Don't know what I'm doing that has me with such a poor showing
  • 19m 2s
  • 2.7 miles
  • 07m 03s  min/mile

Not a bad effort.
Post race
Warm down:

Food and drink

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Only my 4th race. Still learning.

Event comments:

Fun race, nice course.
