Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Up at 6:30am, pack up the vehicle, load my bike, eat a banana and drink some gatorade, drive to the event, set up my transition area next to my teammate Paula.
Event warmup:

Nothing really since the 1st leg was to canoe.
  • 56m 10s
  • 1 meters
  • 93h 36m 40s / 100 meters

Paula and I had a great canoe leg. We caught up to the wave that left 2 minutes before we did and passed some of them. We were straight as an arrow and manuvered the rapid areas really well!
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m 23s

We were quick out of the canoe, hit the port-a-pots, changed into our running shoes, a quick gel and water, then off to the run.
What would you do differently?:

  • 53m 3s
  • 17.52 miles
  • 19.82 mile/hr

The bike leg was actually the last leg of the race. I was out on the bike first and got to about mile 9 before Paula caught up, then drafted her (legal for teams in this race) the rest of the way to the finish - she is an animal on the bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 9s

Quick change of shoes, helmet on, reset my computer (forgot to do that when I set up transition) and off to the bike course.
  • 49m 42s
  • 5.5 miles
  • 09m 02s  min/mile

My lungs were burning, and legs toast by the time I got to the top of the HILL!! Other that that it was a good run. Paula was able to hang with me for the 1st 3 miles then had to back it off a little.

Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing, we gave it all we had!

Event comments:

The 1st time we did this event, it was great! We had a blast! Got 1st in the female-female team division!
