Pre-race routine:

eat an pb&H sandwich, set up transition, relaxed
Event warmup:

none, could not swim so just streched and waited to jump in
  • 45m 42s
  • 2112 yards
  • 02m 10s / 100 yards

I feel i could have done much better had my navigation been better. I was getting off course quickly and often. this is not a problem i have had in the past so not sure quite what to attribute it to other than just not sighting well? maybe?
Transition 1
  • 02m 33s

transitions are the one part of this sport i am good at!
What would you do differently?:

  • 3h 16m 8s
  • 56 miles
  • 17.13 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 02m 47s

i was very stiff comming off the bike, so i was forced to a slow jog/walk in transition.
  • 2h 55m 48s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 13m 25s  min/mile

i did not think i would like the 3 loop course but turns out i loved it. very well stocked at all the water stations. great volenteeers and crowd support.
What would you do differently?:

train more on the run? maybe that can make me faster?

Event comments:

I will defiantly do it again. although the cost is high it is well worth it. very well run race.
