Pre-race routine:

conflicting start time info published, we showed up at 6 for 7 am start, didn't start till 7:30. Very cold, just tried to stay warm
Event warmup:

  • 24m 10s
  • 440 yards
  • 05m 29s / 100 yards

they really screwed up this distance. it seemed like it went on forever. Cold water was a shock and it took a minute to get breathing down.
Transition 1
  • 02m 47s

just a little shell shocked by the long swim, took a minute to get my head right
  • 58m 49s

Tough day. Course was not policed well and had to take bike lane at 161 and you had a volunteer at the turnaround. No police at turnaround.
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s
  • 52m
  • 4 miles
  • 13m  min/mile

just didn't have much after tough swim bike
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Broke arm in December and missed 3 months of training. I also weighed 218 which is probably the heaviest i have raced since my first year. First race of year is always challenging.

Event comments:

I love this race, good course and best post race party. That said, the organizers have got to do a better job of organization and bike course managments. The long swim upset alot of folks.

Nice job at what had to be the coldest Mullet Man to date. Will have to meet you at one of these local races. Probably talked with you without knowing who you are on BT. I had several of the fast swimmers tell me they estimated the swim at 1/2 mile. Tough conditions all around. Good work. Grandman next?

Good job on the race!!! That water had to be freezing, it was a pretty cold day for our area for sure, especially after the warm spring we have had.
