Neenah, Wisconsin

Midwest Sports Events
50F / 10C
Total Time = 1h 25m 57s
Overall Rank = 68/486
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 11/43
Pre-race routine:

Very early start to drive to Neenah. (Up at 4 AM) Gatorade and power bar in the car on the way.
Event warmup:

Stretching and very short run to get my legs ready.
  • 14m 23s
  • 2 miles
  • 07m 11s  min/mile

This is a very short course so I went hard. A small group of four or so runners in my wave bolted from the start and got away from me. I hung with one other person not too far behind them.

Was very happy with this run.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 13s

This was fine, but getting on the bike took longer than I wanted.
  • 54m 35s
  • 19.5 miles
  • 21.44 mile/hr

I hit this flat course hard and it paid off. The wet road conditions and rain kept me from cornering as well as I could have, but overall this was a good ride.

I was passed by a few riders but I passed a ton of people from prior waves.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 3s

Went fine and fast. Forgot to take off cycling gloves so I ran with them in my hand.
What would you do differently?:

  • 14m 42s
  • 2 miles
  • 07m 21s  min/mile

I was hoping to run a negative split, which I missed by a bit, but overall I was happy with this run. I went hard, passed a bunch of people and did not get passed.
Post race
Warm down:

Hung with my kid and friends. Waited for my training partner to finish.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Wet roads.

Event comments:

I liked this race as an early season starter.
