Couldnt' seem to get myself together for most of the swim. Water was calm but I was not so missed several breaths.
What would you do differently?:

Calm down and try to ease into my pace better
Transition 1
  • 03m 32s

Mt bike so did it in running shoes, no clip in. T1 went pretty well for me, I was methodical and calm, it was a long run from water to T1.
What would you do differently?:

  • 59m 9s
  • 11 kms
  • 11.00 km/hr

Mt bike course so speed was all over the map. It sure felt like a lot of uphill to me but a good challenging course
What would you do differently?:

train more
Transition 2
  • 00m 34s

course ended with single track so had to follow people in, it went fine. Rode w running shoes so racked bike, helmet off, time to run!
What would you do differently?:

not much
  • 33m 29s
  • 5 kms
  • 06m 43s  min/km

this was tough! After really having to ride hard just to get through the course, the run was going to be painful. I tried to slow down and relax but ended up having to walk some of this.
What would you do differently?:

slow down a little more so I could keep running
Post race
Warm down:

walk around and drink water and FRS

What limited your ability to perform faster:

NO training in the last 2 weeks due to work hours

Event comments:

This was a great race! I've never done a Mt bike tri before and it was really tough going especially on the run. The only thing I dind't care for was that I had bought a lunch ticket and there was no drink included, no water or soda or anything included and I thought that was a bit cheesy. Otherwise, a great time and I have this race on my calendar for next year already.

If you are a person who feels safer on the trails rather than the road, but you still want to race, this article will help you better train.

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.

A Walmart bike, a borrowed road bike or a new carbon fiber bike? You don't need to break the bank for your first triathlon bike.

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?

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.

Well I said that I was not going to do it this season, but I cracked. I broke down and bought a new bike. I went out and bought a shiny new Cannondale road bike.
