Good run. It was over before you really knew it. I tried to "sandbag" a little, knowing I had a bike and another run coming.
What would you do differently?:

Wear lighter shoes. I had been training in them, but didn't have speed laces so went with the standard Asics. They felt so heavy.
Transition 1
  • 01m 26s

I totally screwed up trying to put my gloves on during T1 and spent way too much time on it. It ended up costing me a podium spot.

I hadn't been cycling much this year, so I wasn't sure how this would work out. My goal was to avg 20mph, but I was only able to hold that through mile ~16.5
What would you do differently?:

Train more on the bike!
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s

Uneventful T2
  • 30m 6s
  • 4 miles
  • 07m 31s  min/mile

Legs were feeling dead. The heat wasn't too bad, but the humidity was around 95%. My shoes were absolutely soaked, and the socks were squisy.
What would you do differently?:

Wear the ligher Newtons, despite not having speed laces.

Warm down:

Waited around for some friends to finish, but not much else.

Event comments:

This was a great race! It was my first Du, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The race was very well organized, and tons of fun. I'd highly reccomend it.
