BONK, for the second time cold water got the best of me. It cost me a good 20 min. Caused some hyperventilating. the last 20 min I finally calmed down and got in my grove.
What would you do differently?:

Practice swim before the race to prepare for the water temp.
Transition 1
  • 09m 26s

The volunteers misplaced my mini transition bag. Lost time looking for it. Other than that good bare foot warm up run ( appox .5 mi) and transition.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 16m 36s
  • 18 miles
  • 14.10 mile/hr

Good bike ride. Could have pushed it a bit but wanted to save some gas for the unknown run. Only problem was people not listening to on your left on the down hills; as a result I had to ride the brakes way too much.
What would you do differently?:

Push it a bit harder.
Transition 2
  • 02m 56s

Good T2 a bit longer on the socks than I wanted
What would you do differently?:

go faster
  • 1h 44m 24s
  • 8 miles
  • 13m 03s  min/mile

good run wanted to keep HR between 145-150. For the most part stuck to the plan. Sand and sand ladder was taxing.
What would you do differently?:

push it a bit harder
Post race
Warm down:

minor stretching in the shade

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Bonking the swim put me behind the eight ball

Event comments:

Top notch, well oiled machine. Very pleased with the race. Wish I didn't bonk the swim. No major critiques to improve it.

Good job, that's a hard race!  Super fun event and course though!  Very tough race course, hard to compare results here to any other race out there.
