70F / 21C
Total Time = 1h 07m 1s
Overall Rank = 37/255
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 4/10
Pre-race routine:

traveled too far, stayed up too late, rushed to get to the race site.
Event warmup:

very little
  • 08m 31s
  • 625 yards
  • 01m 22s / 100 yards

I got way off course by following some other guys who I purposely fell behind. The 3rd buoy was much smaller than the first two, so we totally missed. They only had one support boat, so it took the guy a while to finally paddle over to us to tell us to turn around. I finished 46th...the first time in my career I've finished out of the top 10.
What would you do differently?:

not trust other swimmers to know where they're going.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 37m 59s
  • 13 miles
  • 20.54 mile/hr

par for the course. I'm bad on the bike.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 20m 32s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 37s  min/mile

again...not good. I found out that it's harder racing against guys you don't know because you have no gauge for how fast you're going. I'm usually a top 5-10 run split.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

a 10 hour drive the day before and pizza and beer until midnight the night before the race.
