Pre-race routine:

4:30 wake, banana, peanut butter on wheat bagel, 1 cup of coffee and water until 6 am. Protein bar while preparing for race. 7:34 swim wave
Event warmup:

brief swim with
  • 39m 39s
  • 1931 meters
  • 02m 03s / 100 meters

Need lots of work with my swim.
Transition 1
  • 01m 26s

No wet suit so fast t1. Had trouble getting up to speed as I was trying to get feet into shoes
What would you do differently?:

Practice transitioning...
  • 2h 39m 14s
  • 56 miles
  • 21.10 mile/hr

Pushed hard during bike. Crossed yellow line and got a penalty as I was trying to get around a cluster of bikes and was worried about getting a penalty for inadvertent drafting... Ended up getting a penalty for crossing yellow line...
What would you do differently?:

Hold back on pace - tough run as a result
Transition 2
  • 02m 16s

Wasn't thinking clearly and lost time looking for bike rack location. Slow to get shoes on as I was fatigued from ride and heat was getting to me.
What would you do differently?:

Gone a touch slower to preserve energy for the run
  • 2h 08m 14s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 47s  min/mile

Fatigued from the start. Mental games started at mile one. Fast walk for a count of 60 each mile and ran the rest. Probably drank too much water. Heat was an issue, but think I over did it on the bike.

What would you do differently?:

Less on the bike, more on the run
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Heat and possibly nutrition during the race.
