73F / 23C
Total Time = 2h 47m 33s
Overall Rank = 97/411
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 14/62
Pre-race routine:

up at 4:30, over to the event by 5:30.
Event warmup:

a little bit of swimming to get myself in the mood to swim
  • 34m 2s
  • 1760 yards
  • 01m 56s / 100 yards

I was way too hot in the wetsuit. I haven't done a tri w.out wetsuit yet, but this would have been the perfect race to try it.
Transition 1
  • 03m 26s

I walked the long walk from the water to the bike b/c it was just too hot in that wetsuit. I needed some cool off time.
  • 1h 17m 43s
  • 24.2 miles
  • 18.68 mile/hr

I got a flat tire. The flat took 7 minutes to change. W.out the flat I was 11th age group on the bike and 62nd overall. w. an average of 20.4 mph on the bike. Not too bad.
Transition 2
  • 01m 27s

Good t2 except that I forgot my race number and had to go back into my bag, might have cast 10 sec. which would get me to 1:15 ish. I could be happy with that.
  • 50m 54s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 08m 13s  min/mile

I felt like I was holding on for the whole run. Suffer on the uphill, recover on the downhill. 8:15" isn't bad for the course, but I'd like a little bit faster.

Event comments:

Good race. w. out a wetsuit, and skipping the flat tire I might have been in pretty good shape.
