Pre-race routine:

Got here on time. Lots of folks arrived last second.
  • 11m 36s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 38s / 100 yards

Water was very comfortable. Small waves. One of the few races that everyone didn't seem to be on top of each other.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 13s

Very short run from beach to transition.
  • 41m 1s
  • 13.8 miles
  • 20.19 mile/hr

Pretty fun ride. Some racy folks tearing it up and zipping past me.
What would you do differently?:

Bust a$$ the the first half of the ride.
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s

A little winded at end of ride which slowed me in transition.
  • 32m 5s
  • 3.7 miles
  • 08m 40s  min/mile

Saw lots of folks struggling with the rollers. Normally hills kill me but I was ready for these. The last (giant) hill was a killer.
What would you do differently?:

Knowing this course will help me next year.
Post race
Warm down:

Try to re-energize, this race really zapped me.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The sun.

Event comments:

An all-around great race. Hard to say anything but good things about Warsaw & the Optimists. One of the better run races in the state. However, I am not sure this venue can support too many more racers.

I'll be back next year & on the podium for clydes.

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.
