Total Time = 1h 04m 56s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Woke up about 6a, race is 20mins away from the house (probably the closest tri ) , ate breakfast, cereal and pbnj some coffee
Event warmup:

Set up the bike, transition was well marked for a small race. Hopped in the water swam about 200yds
  • 09m 40s
  • 547 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

Lake course, modified triangle , out about 200yds, then turn left along the buoys back towards shore. Waves were well spread out, and being in the relay I was in the last wave. The lake has a quick drop off at the start and end, so you need to start swimming right away and swim till the exit. Ironically, it has a very shallow depth near the first buoy so I had to dolphin dive to get around it..An earlier wave swimmer requested help, so a kayak come into the middle of the swim course but overall Swim was good, sighting was easy as there were plenty of closely spaced buoys and the finishing arch at the swim exit really helped navigate as I got closer.
What would you do differently?:

Swim faster.
Transition 1
  • 01m 47s
  • 27m 56s
  • 10 miles
  • 21.86 mile/hr

You can see a video of the bike leg here:

This was my second leg of the two person relay. So I hopped on my bike and off i went. I went bare torso as this is such a short bike course. Bike course was flat, and fast, two loops. The only issue was a pot hole near mile 4 right turn, luckily riders in front of me narrowly missed it so I was fortunate.
Transition 2
  • 00m 47s

Relay, so just unvecroed my chip and gave it to my partner.
  • 24m 13s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 51s  min/mile

My relay partner noted that it was very hot and humid, felt strong during the whole run and had a good finishing kick.

Warm down:

Just hydration and cheering on other racers.

Event comments:
