United States
90F / 32C
Total Time = 2h 48m 50s
Overall Rank = 159/553
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 35/90
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4:15, ate bagel with fruit jelly and drank oj.
Event warmup:

Some streching
  • 33m 3s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 01s / 100 yards

Pretty crowded..i like the two loop since it breaks up the distance.

Goal here was to take it easy.
What would you do differently?:

Be faster
Transition 1
  • 04m 25s

Nice .4 mile run from swim exit to transition. got feet in shoe quicker this time around.
  • 1h 10m 31s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 21.14 mile/hr

Wind sucked on a portion of this, although the second loop was easier with the all the folks on the course. got hungry at about 15 miles, so i guess regular gatorade doesn't work for oly distance
What would you do differently?:

Be faster...i am improving, but still dropping a few spots from my swim.
Transition 2
  • 01m 9s

went well
  • 59m 41s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 09m 37s  min/mile

Did better than last year, but was hoping for a faster split. It got hot out there and i had to use the bathroom along the way as well.

after 2nd GU, stomach started hurting.
What would you do differently?:

Not slow down and feel stronger off the bike
Post race
Warm down:

drank a powerade and sat down for a little bit.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not getting nutrition right for such a hot and windy day.

Event comments:

Good race...would have like a aid station between 2.5 and 4 mile on the run.
