Nothing, wasn't able to get in pool for a warm up

Good swim for me

Transition 1
  • 01m 22s

Was cold!

Was freezing! By the end of the ride my hands and feet were numb
Transition 2
  • 01m 9s

Struggled here because hands and feet were numb from the cold. Fumbled a lot but finally got on the running shoes, hat and belt

  • 07m 16s  min/mile

Could not feel my feet until 2.2 miles in, so decent run for numb feet
Post race
Warm down:

Drank some water and packed up transition. You had to pay for post race food so I didn't eat any. Placed second overall female, but they were only giving awards for first overalls, so I got an award for first place age group

Event comments:

The having to pay for post-race food was very odd to me, especially considering it was a $70 sprint tri

Great race! Yes, it was a little cold, but warmer than NC!  Also, do you have a link where the final results were posted?  I too finished 2d AG, but they did offer huge plates of spaghetti and lasagna for free post-race. You just had to walk around the inflatable shark and inside to get it.  I got a few bananas and a powerbar since I wasn't ready for lunch.Laughing Hope to be able to run it again next year...I'll get up front in the swim so I don't have to swim around in the lap lanes!
