Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 3/20
Pre-race routine:

We stayed in a house in Seven Lakes which is about 15 miles from the race site. I overslept but still had enough time to get ready. Had some oatmeal and a coffee and then Scott and I were on our following the rest of the gang.
Event warmup:

Arrived before the race in time to warm up with a run. The air was cool and so warming was definately needed. We had picked up our packets the night before so it was a relaxing race morning.
  • 35m 30s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 10s / 100 yards

Not a good swim. I was 15 out 20 in my AG. My sighting is horrible and I think that had a lot to do with it. Had to stop a few time to figure out where I was and I did end up getting off track a bit.
What would you do differently?:

Swim straighter.
Transition 1
  • 01m 59s

Not a bad transition considering I had a wetsuit on and we had a long run out of the water.
  • 1h 33m 7s
  • 30 miles
  • 19.33 mile/hr

Overall I was really happy with my bike. Being from Wilmington we don't have the hills to train on but I felt like I was able to tackle them pretty well. I was second in my AG and that felt awesome. Passed a few gals in my AG along the way.
Transition 2
  • 01m 3s
  • 42m 44s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 53s  min/mile

I felt FANSTASTIC on the run and didn't even look at my watch. I just ran. Probably the best run I have had since my hip injury. I felt like I 2nd place.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...I gave it my all.
Post race
Warm down:

Ran back to meet Scott on the run course with John and Erin.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My Swim...horrible.
