Overall Rank = 12/235

Age Group Rank = 3/26
Pre-race routine:

normal oatmeal breakfast. packed the car and headed out for about an hour drive to the race.
Event warmup:

got there is plenty of time, and set up transition and did some good stretching and running. about 15 mins before jumped in the lake for about a 200m swim. felt great.
  • 14m 18s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 44s / 100 yards

great swim for me. I started in a good spot to avoid traffic and got out fast. cleared some swimming area and headed straight to the bouy. only contact was my team mate i ended up drafting for about 75 yds. perfect navigation and held a consistant pace.
What would you do differently?:

nothing. best open water swim to date.
Transition 1
  • 00m 49s

good smooth transition. I passed a few people here and quickly cleared the area. teammate was about 10 seconds ahead of me leaving transition.
  • 36m 24s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 20.38 mile/hr

good bike for me. I held a good cadience. My legs did not feel 100% but result was good. now my leading into transition sucked. forgot to exit my shoes early and got into a crowd coming into T2. the guy in front of my hit his brakes early and hard and I had to brake and evade with one foot still in a shoe. This ended in my bike in the grass and 17 mph summersalt and ending on my feet with one shoe on. Realized quickly that I did not have a scrap and grabbed my bike and ran into transition. heard the guy behind me say "Holy ?&%$ that was awsome" the guy that caused the mess was unaware anything happened.
What would you do differently?:

Not crash!!!!!! get my feet out of my shoes a bit earlier.
Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

well from above the dismount did not go a planned. exiting the bike was with a summersalt and lose of a shoe. rest of transition went well. I hope someone got a picture.
What would you do differently?:

again dont crash!!!!!
  • 20m 42s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 34s  min/mile

I was a little pissed off to start the run from my own dismount, so I ran hard from the start. Blazed the first hill dropping 2 guys that were running with me. One was the guy that caused the bad dismount. held a good hard pace.
What would you do differently?:

try to run a bit faster but this was one of my fastest runs off the bike with hills.

Event comments:

this race was unbelievable with the way it was put on. they actually had prizes for winners, and volunteers everywhere that knew what they were doing. course was challenging but new racers could manage.

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.

The triathlon made a lot of sense as I could fit the training around early mornings and other times that wouldn't eat too much into my family time. Things never go completely to plan do they?

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

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!

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

A description of my experiences during my first triathlon. It was a great experience. I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been.

It’s a challenge to push yourself a little harder and a little further. Be proud of every workout that is accomplished and every step-even the baby ones-that you take on this course to the finishline.
