Was disappointed about the swim getting cancelled, and wasn't quite prepared for the extra running and late start time.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 1h 53m 53s
  • 34.92 miles
  • 18.40 mile/hr

Brutal winds and rain. On the way out, I was holding 27 mph for some stretches with little effort. After the turn around it was time to pay the piper, and I struggled to hit 17 mph into the headwind and rain, more like 12 on the uphills.
What would you do differently?:

eat a bigger breakfast
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 1h 36m 25s
  • 9.32 miles
  • 10m 21s  min/mile

I was hurting badly but survived it. Considered dropping out, but just kept going.
Post race
Warm down:

Gorged myself on the post-race meal: lasagne, potatoes, rice, salad, cookies, bagels, pop, juice. Then went comatose for the afternoon.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

fitness and energy

Event comments:

I probably bit off more than I could chew with this one. The field was incredibly fast, with the top time just over 3 hours. I guess I am proud that I finished it. There were 13 DNFs on the run, almost 1/10 of the field.
