Pre-race routine:

Got up early to walk the dog. Doing the sprint so the 8:30 start was nice for me as I didn't have to get up to early.
Event warmup:

Parked my car in the wrong overflow lot and was worried I'd get a ticket so after I setup my bike, etc. I ran back to my car and parked in the correct lot. Once again, great that the Tri started at 8:30.

Also cheered on the folks getting out of the water from the Olympic.
  • 11h 25m
  • 440 yards
  • 2h 35m 41s / 100 yards

Water was nice. Not sure why but I'm getting the yips with the swim. I was a little to amped by the first buoy and had to calm myself down and get a normal breathing pattern. But, after I turned for home I put in the kick. Siting was a little poor on coming in.
What would you do differently?:

Little more open water swim training.
Transition 1
  • 01m 21s

Good transition although I had a slight problem strapping on bike shoes.
  • 42h 24m
  • 11.88 miles
  • 0.28 mile/hr

New strategy involves staying off of the big chain as much as I can and save my legs for the run. Only a couple hills where I slowed otherwise picked up some good speed where I could.
Transition 2
  • 01m 5s

Did not have speed laces with new shoes and didn't realize how much time it takes to tie.
What would you do differently?:

Speed laces
  • 25m 25s
  • 3.14 miles
  • 08m 05s  min/mile

The part of my tri gain that is improving and the part I train the least. Felt real good on the run and could have done a little more.
Post race
Warm down:

Coconut water, packed up and went home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Swim could have been better
