St. Petersburg, Florida
United States
5150 Triathlon Series
80F / 27C
Total Time = 2h 33m 13s
Overall Rank = 971/2404
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 73/127
Pre-race routine:

Super organized check in the day before the race. Security was changed following the Boston Marathon bombing but enforcement of the rules was pretty lax. If I had known they weren't going to enforce the rules I wouldn't of followed them.
  • 13m 54s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 51s / 100 meters

Swim went quick, wish we could of done the full 1500 meters as the winds and seas calmed down after the sun came up
Transition 1
  • 06m 40s

Seemed like a really long run out of the water and all the way around to transition since the swim course was shortened. Took me forever to get my shoes on.
What would you do differently?:

Quicker in the transition area!
  • 1h 17m 44s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 19.18 mile/hr

I had to get off my bike at the aid station due to nature calling. That and me being unable to keep my cadence up resulted in a five minute slower bike than last year. Pretty frustrating.
Transition 2
  • 02m 2s

Went alright.
  • 52m 53s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 31s  min/mile

Run didn't go too bad, I always have a hard time going fast in warm humid weather.
What would you do differently?:

I need to get lighter so I can keep my speed up on the run and the bike.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I'm about 10-15 pounds heavier than my ideal racing weight. I need to get down below 200 pounds.

Event comments:

Great race overall. Very organized. Only complaint might be that too many people do this race!
