Pre-race routine:

Woke up around 4. Had egg salad and toast (not sure why I went with egg salad), and checked the weather. 90% chance of thunderstorms all morning. Thought about going back to bed. Decided to make the drive.
Event warmup:

Stood around and got soaked in the rain.
  • 16m 7s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 09s / 100 meters

This was a horrible swim! I thought I got in the front of the wave. There were a couple people in front of me but they were slow and for some reason, I couldn't get around them.
What would you do differently?:

Be in the front. Try harder to move around people. I'm too polite on the swim :)
Transition 1
  • 02m 47s

There was mud and puddles everywhere. Running my bike out was tough. My bike shoes were soaked and kind of hard to get on.
  • 40m 2s
  • 11 miles
  • 16.49 mile/hr

I felt good considering my lack of training and the wet roads.
What would you do differently?:

Train more. Not be such a wimp with wet roads and downhills.
Transition 2
  • 01m 18s

My running shoes were SOAKED. It was really hard to get them on. Ran through a giant mud puddle on the way out, shoes filled with mud.
What would you do differently?:

Bring socks. Put my shoes in a plastic bag.
  • 28m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 21s  min/mile

My shoes were wet and felt like they weighed 10 pounds each. The wet shoes and no socks lead to some painful rubbing on the back of my heel. I thought I was having a horrible run. I didn't feel good and was a little depressed I kept getting passed. I ran 9:21/mile which is good for me. I'll take it.
What would you do differently?:

Put shoes in a bag. bring socks.

Event comments:

This was a fun race. I'm sure if it wasn't thundering and pouring rain it would have been much better. Maybe next year.
