Pre-race routine:

Got up at 4 AM. Had coffee and bowl of oatmeal with honey and blueberries. Left at 4:45 AM. Arrived at race site at 5:45 AM. Got body marked and set up in transition. Looked at course. Sat in car and read a while. Talked to other women.

Jogged a few short steps. Did some windmills with arms. Waited for wave to start.

  • 300 meters
  • 03m 13s / 100 meters

Didn't swim all week and it showed. Wasn't smooth, didn't have good roll. Couldn't wait to get done so I could get on the bike.

Did swim all the way to the shore.
What would you do differently?:

Swim more.

This was not my best ride. It was acceptable and seemed easy, but I didn't feel strong or fast.
What would you do differently?:

More hill and interval training.
Transition 2
  • 01m 36s

This was a fantastic run for me. I felt fast and strong. I probably could have run even faster.

Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, got a burger, got a mimosa, talked to people.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Time and practice.

Event comments:

This is the best sprint race I have ever done. I had very mixed emotions about doing an all women event. I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will do it again if it fits into my schedule.

Volunteers were the best!
