Pre-race routine:

left house at 4:39, arrived in an hour. Parked and walked to packet pickup. Took about 15 minutes. got stuff and went to put numbers on bike. It took 35 minutes in line to get to transition. If we do it next year we need to stay over. We were there as early as possible and we were still rushed.
Event warmup:

raced as clyde, but i did my rankings against ag.
  • 14m 42s
  • 586 yards
  • 02m 31s / 100 yards

amazing swimming through huge schools of man o wars. they were purple and beautiful. no stings.
Transition 1
  • 02m 2s

long run but no issues
  • 56m 38s
  • 18 miles
  • 19.07 mile/hr

I got busted for drafting. I don't really think I was guilty, but I was in the wrong place. About a mile into the ride,a guy passed me and then slowed. I was thinking whether I wanted to go ahead and move back or get my legs moving first. Anyway, bike rides up beside me and I knew I was caught. I had a great ride anyway. Passed 125 bikes, got passed by 24. Killer headwind out and sweet tail back.
Transition 2
  • 01m 44s
  • 32m 38s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 29s  min/mile

felt pretty good, couldn't get gps to work.
Post race
Warm down:

we waited forever to get bikes out of transition. we had a busy day ahead of us so decided to go home.

Event comments:

good fun race, I beat Marcy by 1:35 until you add my 2 minute penalty. Shame on me. Before the penalty, I was 30 seconds faster than last year. This was my first race 10 years ago and I have done it 6 times. Its fun, good party and weather was great. With 1200 people the morning logistics are a pain. I will stay over next year so the pre race isn't as stressful.
