Pre-race routine:

Coffee and granola bar as usual.
Event warmup:

No warm-up as usual.
  • 11m 34s
  • 437 yards
  • 02m 38s / 100 yards

My swim would have been much better, but I stopped in the middle to help a 9 year old girl who was panicking. She had started before me, and she was hyperventilating, and I couldn't just leave her. So, I waded next to her for a bit, getting her to float on her back, until she said that she was OK. I was worried to leave her, but I saw that the lifeguards on the kayaks were watching her pretty closely. She completed the swim and the rest of the race...pretty awesome for 9 years old!
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 03m 45s

It was at least .2 miles from the swim exit to transition, so that's where most of my time was spent. Otherwise transition went well.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...well, maybe try to run a bit faster between the river and transition.
  • 41m 11s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 18.11 mile/hr

It was a pretty boring course, but also pretty flat. I hadn't been on my bike on the road since Austin in October of last year, so I was pretty happy with my performance. My butt was burning by the time I got back.
What would you do differently?:

Train on my bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 5s

Pretty good transition
What would you do differently?:

  • 24m 14s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 47s  min/mile

I had a pretty good run. On one of the grueling uphills I notice my pace was over 10min/miles, so on the way in I was pushing almost 7 min/miles to make up for it.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Not much

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training recently.

Event comments:

Team Magic always puts on a great race!!! I stuck around for the awards ceremony, because I knew I was the 5th OA female, so I would place in my age group. It wasn't until they did the awards and my name was called as the 2nd OA masters female did I realize that I am now in the masters division. I'm still 39!!! Oy!
