Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5:00am and arrive at the event around 5:40, good thing because there were alot of cars.
HIM wave didnt start until 8:30 so went to setup transition area then headed back to the car to stay warm for the next hour and a half.
Event warmup:

Waited until I got down to the start around 8:30am to do my normal warm up routine of air squats, jumping jacks, arm swings, and high knees. It was cold so I didnt want to warm up to early.
  • 30m 58s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 53s / 100 yards

Swim felt really good compared to last tri. Swim mostly all freestyle, only breaststroke to sight when I got confused. I could have pushed harder (kicked and pulled), put I'm happy with the results.
What would you do differently?:

Kick and pull a little harder.
Transition 1
  • 05m 43s

It was cold coming out of the water so I had to towel off and put on my socks and jacket.
What would you do differently?:

  • 3h 26m
  • 56 miles
  • 16.31 mile/hr

Due to the rain and cold, I did the best I could. The first lap I was so cold.
What would you do differently?:

No triathlon in October lol
Transition 2
  • 02m 24s

Feet were frozen!
  • 2h 08m 47s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 50s  min/mile

6 miles in my foot started cramping bad, then my whole right legs including hip flexer. I guess I need to try salt tablets. I was hoping to go under 2 hours but with the cold and my leg I was happy to finish and not walk at all.
Post race
Warm down:

Rev3 probably recovery boots which was great but it was so cold out that after 15 minutes I needed to find heat before I ended up in the med tent.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Cold, rain, and cramping leg.

Event comments:

I heard Rev3 put on good events, but this seemed kind of lacking. Maybe because officially it wasnt there event or the rain and cold.
