Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 55-59
Age Group Rank = 10/19
Pre-race routine:

2 Scoops of Infinit Nutrition and one Stinger Waffle cookie.
Event warmup:

Rolled feet, foam roller stretch and static stretches.
  • 20m 2s
  • 820 yards
  • 02m 26s / 100 yards

Not sure what happened out there with the swim, but I didn't do as well as I hoped to.
What would you do differently?:

Will buy a pair of goggles just for events. Saw some I might get in a new triathlon magazine I just received.
I will get a swim lesson from Lance Leo within the next week or so.
Transition 1
  • 02m 43s

In checking my Garmin results, I managed over 20+ moving speed on the course. Which does make me feel better about this event.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing in the T1 area, but I did not sit down to put my shoes on and I did have problems getting my shoes on. Didn't cost much time, but did cost a little.
  • 51m 17s
  • 17 miles
  • 19.89 mile/hr

Chain came off around mile 2. I was changing into the lower gear when it happened.
What would you do differently?:

Be more careful with changing gears, but I don't ride my Equinox much after getting the Trek 6.2, so I'm not sure.
Might have been nutrition, but I'll have to come up with a better game plan for Stumpy.
