Overall Rank = 58/164
Age Group = 45 - 49
Age Group Rank = 11/14

  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 52s / 100 meters

Water was VERY clear and nice. Wish I had this lake to swim in all the time!

I drafted a little off a guy who past me. Other than that I held my spot and only passed a few people. Buoys were yellow and some people had lime-green caps on. This made sighting difficult until I got closer to buoys.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really.
Transition 1
  • 01m 6s

I hit the gear lever when I racked my bike. Had to rack with handlebars because the bar was too low for the seat. This caused an issue when trying to get going.
What would you do differently?:

Practice shoes clipped in while jumping on bike.
  • 1h 23m 51s
  • 24.5 miles
  • 17.53 mile/hr

One major hill I screwed up on. Had to stop 3/4 up Heartbreak Hill and walk it. When I got to the top I realized I was on my big chain wheel...crap!
What would you do differently?:

Watch my gears!
Transition 2
  • 01m 1s
  • 53m 39s
  • 6.05 miles
  • 08m 52s  min/mile

My Garmin has distance at 6.05 miles while the course is listed at 5.6 miles and I'm only 0.04 off on the time!

My heart rate continued to increase as I ran and heated up. My goal was to start at a 10 min/mi pace and increase to a 8 min/mi. I ended up starting around 9 something and finishing at 8.
What would you do differently?:

Work on running more but was coming off a hamstring injury. Didn't get much run time in the months prior to the race.
Post race
Warm down:

Eat and drink. Lots of fruit and water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Hamstring injury this summer, lack of training.

Event comments:

I'm planning on a return trip next year!
