Comments:

Made a major mistake at the start. I positioned myself to the left of the course nearest the bouy's (its an 300m straight line with a 90 degree left hand turn at the end). everyone did the same and it was too choppy and too many people. I had to take a 45 degree angle, got to the right side of the course and was fine after that. I planned on swimming in about 12 min, so having to make this adjustment cost me about 1 minute.
What would you do differently?:

Start where I planned to all along.

Its a long tranistion run in and out for bike mount, so I am OK with this time.

Bike course was changed due to road repairs and was shortened to 10.5 miles. I was really happy with my bike time as I averaged 20 MPH, which is strong for me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing

Nothing here, good transition

This is where it fell apart for me. The Northeast has been strugling with a heatwave and SAturday was day 7 of it. And just as I entered T2, the sun came out full. Its an out and back course an I made it to turn around in average time, but totally hit the wall on the last half.
What would you do differently?:

Dont know, need to comtemplate

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Heat and humidity

Event comments:

CGI Racing puts on a great event. This is my second time racing this event and its on my calendar each year. Overall, I am disappointed with my performance. The swim was OK and my bike was good, but my run sucked. Need to re-evaluate my training.

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!
