Event warmup:

Rode my bike to the start. 5.5mi
  • 08m 23s
  • 575 yards
  • 01m 28s / 100 yards

Hung on to mark snowise's heels as long as I could (maybe 150 yards), and then swam the rest on my own. Good pace I think
Transition 1
  • 01m 5s

Might have been the 1st time ever that my wetsuit didn't get stuck on my heels. I didn't use any body glide- but I pulled it all the way down to my calves before I tried to pull it off. Worked well. May need to practice this a bit more.
  • 39m 42s
  • 12.02 miles
  • 18.17 mile/hr

Held it close to LT for as much of the race as I could- cept the downhills. This was all I had.
What would you do differently?:

? Train more?
Transition 2
  • 01m

I thought it was reasonably quick. kicked off the cycling shoes, slipped on the socks and running shoes. All went smoothly
What would you do differently?:

maybe no socks?
  • 13m 21s
  • 2 miles
  • 06m 41s  min/mile

rocked it. Started off just a touch easy, taking smaller steps out of the parking area to the flat. Took 1/4 mile or more for my calves to loosen up and then I brought it right up to LT and a little above as the hill got steeper. Basically- ran it as hard as I could sustain. Let the legs fly down the hill as best I could, and then pushed it across the flat part to the end. Perhaps I had another 2% to give, but not much more.
Post race
Warm down:

two veggie burgers

Event comments:

Hey- this is just a little Club training tri. Thanks to Mark Snowise for organizing and Steve Foley- fresh off of rockin' IMLP, for taking the times and doing some barbecue cooking for us all. I love these little tri's.
