Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina
United States
Set Up Events
62F / 17C
Total Time = 7h 00m
Overall Rank = 267/512
Age Group = Master Clydes
Age Group Rank = 5/14
Pre-race routine:

Not much, up at 5:00 to drive to site. Took my time and picked out a good parking spot to allow for easy access back out to get home.
Event warmup:

Nothing, took bus to swim start and stood around awaiting wave.
  • 35m 22s
  • 1700 yards
  • 02m 05s / 100 yards

Not much to say about it besides this is what I have come to expect. I am not a good swimmer regardless of the amount of time I put in the pool. Glad to be moving to duathlons
What would you do differently?:

Push harder
Transition 1
  • 01m 6s

Pretty good transition which I have come to expect 70th place overall, 1st in division.
What would you do differently?:

  • 33m 4s
  • 12 miles
  • 21.77 mile/hr

Pushed hard on the bike, wanted to average over 21 mph which I was able to do although I was caught on the drawbridge coming and going behind a very slow cyclist and unable to pass. Know I gave away over 30 seconds on this, possibly more.
What would you do differently?:

Pass the slow cyclist coming back before the bridge.
Transition 2
  • 01m

Another good transition as expected, 63rd overall and 2nd in division. Fumbled a little with shoes but nothing too bad.
What would you do differently?:

  • 21m 29s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 55s  min/mile

Ran well even without my garmin. Wanted to push hard and run off of feel. Passed several people during the run and was only passed once by a relay runner.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Walked back into transition, got gear, and left

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My inability to swim, other than that, not much

Event comments:

Overall a good race for me to go out of triathlons on. Lost a little time on the bike due to slower cylists but with 1100+ participants that is to be expected. Ready to move on to duathlons as I have truly come to hate swimming even more as time has progressed.
