Lincoln Park, New Jersey
United States
81F / 27C
Total Time = 58m 24s
Overall Rank = 3/123
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 0/18
Pre-race routine:

Rode my bike from my parent's house to the race site.
Event warmup:

Just a little swimming.
  • 06m 24s
  • 547 yards
  • 01m 10s / 100 yards

The swim would be great for a beginner, water was calm and course was well guarded.
Transition 1
  • 01m 35s
What would you do differently?:

Skip putting on the socks.
  • 28m 19s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 26.34 mile/hr

The course was fine, there were probably too many turns to really get going. The race officials were not great a telling people where to go. They directed the winner of the race in the wrong direction when coming out of the course.
What would you do differently?:

I took one turn much too tightly and hit the bottom of my pedal on the ground, I would work on those turns more.
Transition 2
  • 59m 2s

I actually forgot to take my helmet off and started running with it out of transition. A race official took my helmet and put it with my bike.
What would you do differently?:

remember to take my helmet off.
  • 21m 5s
  • 3.11 miles
