Total Time = 6h 35m 16s
Overall Rank = 242/
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 35/44
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4:00 and drank an ensure. Went back to bed until 5:15. Stayed in the host hotel so the transition area was close about 5:30 walked my bike down to transition and got my time chip. Went back to the room until about 6:45.
Event warmup:

Done some stretching and light warm up
  • 41m 53s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 59s / 100 yards

there was some mess up at the start went about 30-40 yards further then we was supposed to.
What would you do differently?:

Go the right way
Transition 1
  • 03m 34s

long ways from water about 150-200 yards
  • 3h 15m 16s
  • 56 miles
  • 17.21 mile/hr

I went to fast on the bike. I felt good so I kept pushing and sould not have done that the last 5-6 mile I really slowed down but it was a little late the dammage was done. I normally bike 56 mile at about 16 mpr.
What would you do differently?:

Go a little slower on the bike and save energy for the run
Transition 2
  • 01m 54s

I put on sox for the run so that slowed me some
  • 2h 32m 41s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 40s  min/mile

I hate loops. I went out to fast on the bike and so I paided for it on the run. My run plan was walk the aid stations jog the rest keep a 10 min pace. I made it to about mile 10 and the wheels fell off. I had to start walking between aid stations and pace fell drasticly. Mile 11 to finish was like 29 min or something. But I learnd a lesson so I guess that makes it better. I GUESS
What would you do differently?:

slow down on the bike. Stay within my ranges
Post race
Warm down:

walked with wife and daughter
