Total Time = 1h 18m 39s
Overall Rank = 135/
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 28/76
Pre-race routine:

Waffles and Diet Coke, of course. Good rack spot on the end of the row.
Event warmup:

Ran about a mile.
  • 10m 21s
  • 547 yards
  • 01m 53s / 100 yards

Lousy damn swim. Goggles started fogging almost from the start. That wasn't a major issue until I turned into the sun on the way back in and couldn't see a damn thing. I blew a ton of energy trying to clean them while treading water with just my feet. Got so wiped out that I had to hang on to one of the paddle boards to get my breath back and clean the damn things off again. As it was, I still had trouble seeing the swim exit. The lack of training didn't help.
What would you do differently?:

Put some anti-fog on the damn goggles!
Transition 1
  • 02m 17s

One of my worst T1's ever. I had to walk the entire way because I was so beat from the swim.
  • 42m 22s
  • 14 miles
  • 19.83 mile/hr

Lousy bike. Only average 183 watts, which is pathetic for a 14 mile ride. The less said the better.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 53s

Decent T2.
  • 22m 44s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 35s  min/mile

Not a bad run pace considering, but when my run rank is that much better than my swim and bike ranks, you know it wasn't a good race.

Event comments:

Decent little race. They seemed a little short on volunteers, but it didn't hinder anything.
