Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon - Duathlon

Chatanooga, Tennessee

Team Magic
Total Time = 2h 28m 45s
Overall Rank = 222/725
Age Group = 25-29 Male
Age Group Rank = 24/51
Pre-race routine:

Swim was replaced by another run due to flooding. Got to the race site about an hour before start, tightened my aerobars (they still wiggle way more than they should), set up transition, and played the waiting game.
Event warmup:

Some stretching, but that was it.
  • 14m 36s
  • 2 miles
  • 07m 07s  min/mile
Transition 1
  • 01m 4s
  • 1h 20m 21s
  • 26.1 miles
  • 19.49 mile/hr

Tough bike course. First time using aerobars in a race, also first race since my fitting. And I felt fast. Really fast. I was actually upset that my time wasn't better, but those hills were brutal, so I guess that explains it. I also found my front tire was flat the next morning, so I probably got a flat during the race... then again, I didn't notice it, so maybe not.
Transition 2
  • 01m 25s
  • 51m 21s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 21s  min/mile

Brought my water bottle with me, and that helped a lot! I drank the whole bottle, and stopped at every water station. Still can't make the whole 10K in a tri without walking, but I think I'm getting closer.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked around, got some gatorade, ate some pizza and beer.

Event comments:

Still sad that it was a Du and not a Tri this year, but oh well... Still had fun.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

I can't run a seven-minute mile anymore, but that doesn't take away from the joy of finishing

Race report on the Chattanooga Waterfront Tri - Beginners Point of View. This was my first Olympic length triathlon and also the first time I had done a race with cycling shoes instead of cages.
