Total Time = 1h 25m 1s
Overall Rank = 174/243
Age Group = Males
Age Group Rank = 136/173
Pre-race routine:

First timer. Really cold outside. 38 degrees w/ 10-15 mph wind from the south. Tried to stay relaxed and figure out where everything was. Fairly easy and finished in the transition area.
Event warmup:

Went for a brisk short walk before stripping down for the indoor swim.
  • 11m 5s
  • 437 yards
  • 02m 32s / 100 yards

This rank is for 173 males. Proud of my swim. Took off easy. Starts were every 15 seconds. I had 3 people pass me and I passed 2. !!!Swam freestyle the entire swim. I have never done that before. Proud of my pace and the endurance I have build up. This gives me confidence to extend my workouts.
What would you do differently?:

Swim through the egress area where I waded.
Transition 1
  • 02m 5s

The mount line was 150 yards of concrete from the transition area. It was very cold with wind. I dried off; pulled on my helmet and a wind stopper jacket; picked up my shoes and ran my bike through the mount line about 10 yards. Then I went to the side pulled on my shoes and got started. I was afraid of running that distance on concrete with my bike shoes.
What would you do differently?:

  • 51m 6s
  • 12 miles
  • 14.09 mile/hr

This rank is for 173 males. Pushed to get up the big first hill and this may have taken it out of my legs. Don't know anything else I could have done.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 55s

Pretty good
  • 18m 51s
  • 2 miles
  • 09m 26s  min/mile

Coming off the course I felt it was bad, but I averaged 9:26 miles which is good. I can't be unhappy with this.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and stretched.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I'm old.

Event comments:

This is my first, but I enjoyed it and finished.
