Pre-race routine:

6:30 breakfast, stretched, coffee on the way. Felt hungry so I ate a honey stinger waffle. As usual, digesting food during the race.
Event warmup:

jogged around a little
  • 27m 50s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 59s  min/mile

don't know rank- there was a 5k going on at the same time. 34 out of all.
Transition 1
  • 01m 45s
  • 10m 34s
  • 437 yards
  • 02m 25s / 100 yards

serpentine swim. It was fine. The times include the run from the timing mat into the pool and back out, probably added a minute. I'm wish I had gone faster but I passed one guy and no one caught me so I felt like I was going fast. 25 yards so hard to get into a rhythm. Should have thought better about hitting the wall and pushing off.
Transition 2
  • 01m 54s
  • 17m 55s
  • 2.9 kms
  • 06m 11s  min/km

Event comments:

The race started 30 minutes late- for a 1-hour race, that's a pretty big deal.
The run included multiple loops and half-loops, and the pre-race instructions sounded confusing but it was really laid out well. 2 water stations and 4 guys with clipboards checking numbers as racers went by to make sure everyone was doing the right number of loops. The swim was very smooth too- lots of volunteers, you just had to run and swim, not wonder where you were going.
Awards took a riduculously long time. I finished the race, showered and got dressed, and they were just starting the 5k awards. The sheet was already up with the aquathon awards. I waited 15 minutes and finally had to leave without my award. This was a nice event but I don't think I'd do it again unless I had nothing else going on that day, because it started so late and awards took so long.
