as usual, dificulty regulating breathing at the start. Had to stop 3 times to relax breathing and find pace.
What would you do differently?:

Train more w/ breathing on every stroke. Even when I found my pace I wasn't able to go to everyone rotation as i do in training.
Transition 1
  • 00m

decent transition - no signficant problems drank some gatorade
What would you do differently?:

wear watch so I can get actual time. Contemplate necessity of wearing bike gloves and bikr shorts for this distance - 16 miles. not drink gatorade
  • 59h 58m
  • 16 miles
  • 0.27 mile/hr

long up hills. Ate a power gel 3/4 of the way thru.
What would you do differently?:

get clipless petals since i can't afford a carbon bike!
don't eat power gel!
Transition 2
  • 00m

guess it's the only advantage to not having clipless petals, able to rack the bike and immediately run. drank more gatorade
What would you do differently?:

not drink gatorde
  • 27h 00m

  • 9h 00m  min/mile

Got stomach cramp. Think it has the power gel &/or Gatorade

drink only water
Post race

What limited your ability to perform faster:

stomach cramps

Event comments:

Registration could've been more organized, otherwise well run, good course markings, helpful volunteers, beautiful secenry with a challenging bike course.
