Pre-race routine:

First race parents were at so hung out with them and got them organized as to what to expect.
Event warmup:

Little swim
  • 28m 16s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 43s / 100 yards

The swim was a deep water start which I've never done. Was really really crowded, so I stayed to the outside. Hit the first buoy at a good angle. Swim was pretty choppy as well from the wind off the lake. Was hard to see buoys at times.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m 17s

Had trouble getting the suit off. Couldn't get the strap out of the suit and this wasted some time. Put shoes on in transition since bike is 5 miles up hill out of transition.
What would you do differently?:

Do something different with the strap.
  • 1h 14m 55s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 19.90 mile/hr

Not a bad bike. Was much hilly then I can train for in Florida. Overall was happy even though I really wanted to go faster.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 37s

Good T2. Long transition area. Almost ran into a bike heading out.
What would you do differently?:

  • 48m 49s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 52s  min/mile

The first mile is all up hill. The first 1/4-1/2 is up a really steep hill. Had a good negative split.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Maybe could have finished stronger.
