Tri It Now
85F / 29C
Total Time = 51m 38s
Overall Rank = 6/155
Age Group = 16-19
Age Group Rank = 2/7
  • 08m 6s
  • 425 yards
  • 01m 55s / 100 yards

A lot of people "estimate" their swim times for 7 or 8 and actually swam 10 or 11 which ruins the swim part of this race. People like that would hug the inside of the lane making it nearly impossible to get past them without going into a complete sprint for an entire length of the pool. Ended up having to go under a few people.
What would you do differently?:

I'll be sure to set my swim time as 3 or 4 next year to avoid getting caught up behind that bs. Anyway, ended up with not too bad of a time but wasted a lot more energy than I should have.
Transition 1
  • 01m 14s

  • 26m 5s
  • 11.2 miles
  • 25.42 mile/hr

Really good ride but again had to go around some inexperienced people that slowed down the race. Countless times I was faced with the choice to either pass 10 feet to the right or cross the center line in order to pass to the left. Choose the right every time and one guy even yelled at me for it...
What would you do differently?:

"estimating" my swim time at 3 or 4 minutes would have helped me to avoid these people as much as I could.
Transition 2
  • 01m 3s

  • 15m 11s
  • 2.6 miles
  • 05m 52s  min/mile

Good run, good kick at the end. The well paced bike led to me having just enough energy left to spend on the run
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

slow people in front of me physically impeding people behind them from advancing

Event comments:

Start time was delayed by about 30 minutes for no reason. Regardless, I enjoy this race and plan on doing it again next year

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.
