Pre-race routine:

Got there very early, beat the traffic was the second person to pick up my packet that morning.
Event warmup:

Went for a short swim.
  • 08m 32s
  • 400 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards

This was my first time so I started in the back. I wont do that again every time I tried to get going I would run into someone slower ahead of me.
What would you do differently?:

Start up front and take my chances.
Transition 1
  • 03m 20s

Took way to long to mess with my shirt and race number.
What would you do differently?:

Will get a tri top, and a number belt for the next race should save me at least a min. Get bike mount for my gps watch.
  • 43m 41s
  • 13.6 miles
  • 18.68 mile/hr

Meet my goal, but looking back should have went harder on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Go out harder and try to pick up the speed some.
Transition 2
  • 00m 55s

Felt good, not the fastest but fast enough.
What would you do differently?:

  • 25m 55s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 22s  min/mile

Felt good killed my goals, should have worked on the run more in training could have done better and picked up more places.
Post race
Warm down:

Get water and food. Talk and meet great people.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

This was my first event so it was a complete learning experience and a great one.

Event comments:

Loved it and will do it again if I can.
