Carrollton, Georgia
United States
Blue Sky Sports
57F / 14C
Total Time = 1h 20m 14s
Overall Rank = 67/323
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 2/25
Pre-race routine:

Arrive early, 6:30ish. No rush setup.
Event warmup:

Ran the first mile and the last mile. Swam 50 yds.
  • 12m 15s
  • 656 yards
  • 01m 52s / 100 yards

Swam steady. Stroked the whole way. Intentionally breathing more during the frantic first 100.
Transition 1
  • 01m 10s

Trouble getting wetsuit off heels. Still was a 'fast' T1, probably top 20. The transition area is long, so be sure you know where is your spot. A guy beside me put tied a balloon to the rack, which helped me.
What would you do differently?:

Need more lube for removing wetsuit, and more practice.
  • 43m 28s
  • 13.8 miles
  • 19.05 mile/hr

Below average performance on the bike due to less bike training this spring and not wearing my heart rate monitor.
Transition 2
  • 00m 44s

Fumbled getting shoes on, but still a fast T2. Fastest in age group, probably top 20 overall.
  • 22m 38s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 18s  min/mile

Solid performance given low training volume.
Post race
Warm down:

Walking back and forth to car.

Event comments:

Tri The Parks / TriBlueSky always does a good job. Post race snacks are basic, so if you're staying for the awards, bring a big sandwich.
