United States
Total Time = 2h 30m 11s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 40-45
Age Group Rank = 6/31
Event warmup:

light jogg
  • 26m 57s
  • 1609 meters
  • 01m 40s / 100 meters

I was deliberately conservative as I had never raced this distance before. I found it frustrating when I caught up to other waves and had to stop and then navigate around them - but that is the nature of triathlons I guess!
What would you do differently?:

be more aggressive
Transition 1
  • 05m 4s

I had a very slow transition which probably cost me some valuabe time - wetsuit got stuck - also though I deliberately tried to be conservative and keep my heart down a bit. the tranisiton area was huge and it was a long way between getting out of the swim and to the bicycle mount station
What would you do differently?:

go faster - lube the ankle area of wetsuit, plan this through better
  • 1h 06m 43s
  • 32.19 kms
  • 28.95 km/hr
Transition 2
  • 03m 59s

still quite slow!!
  • 47m 18s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 44s  min/km

I was fairly happy with this run - again I was being a little conservative and wanting to not blow up - this was my first tri of this distance
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

no previous experience at this distance
poor transition and less than average bike perfomrance

Event comments:

this was one of the best triathlons i have been to - and i loved the finishers medal!! It felt so amazing to cross the finishers line. the food was great post race (although as a chef - i would have done it differently - just the food that is)
the ride course, although fun to do was stressful and there were a lot of traffic jams. the swim and run courses were excellent and safe. i WILL do this again!!!
