Pre-race routine:

Up at 4:25 for the second time in a week. ugghhh. oatmeal, drive an hour or so to the beach w. Mike
Event warmup:

Just made it in time to set up transition and walk over to the beach for swim start.
  • 09m 48s
  • 587 yards
  • 01m 40s / 100 yards

Felt great during the swim. Started right on buoy line although the buoys on the course had drifted way outside. Most everyone swam inside the bouys but outside the kayakers. Held my line throughout race, swam hard-ish and felt good.
What would you do differently?:

swim more. :)
Transition 1
  • 01m 6s

Pretty good for me. wetsuit off, quick w/ shoes, helmet and glasses.
  • 34m 41s
  • 11 miles
  • 19.03 mile/hr

Most folks mentioned bike course was long - more like 12.4 or so. Pushed hard whole way - passed a few chicks, lots of boys from earlier waves and played leapfrog w/ the woman who won Grand Master. Lost my brand spankin new sunglasses. damn. Legs felt pretty good considering LP was last weekend.
Transition 2
  • 00m 36s

great work here :)
  • 23m 23s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 32s  min/mile

Went out hard and tried to keep pace. I got dusted big time by 4 girls - like I was standing still. My run still needs work but I was glad I was able to maintain a decent pace for myself. Certainly not in the 7's but definitely in the mid- high 8's I believe.
Post race
Warm down:

lots of water - it was very hot and humid! Waited around for awards, chatted w/ friends. Got 1st AG 2nd year in a row. :)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My run. IMLP 6 days prior.

Event comments:

My goal was to finish the race in less time than my IMLP swim time of 1:15, which was also my finishing time for this race last year. Glad to shave 6 minutes off my time. :)
