Tullahoma, Tennessee

Mach Tenn Running Club
70F / 21C
Total Time = 1h 44m 27s
Overall Rank = 150/316
Age Group = 55-59
Age Group Rank = 10/18
Event warmup:

Swim out to the first buoy and back a few minutes before the start.
  • 18m 35s
  • 1056 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

Good swim for me. Not a lot of contact. Sighting was pretty easy with it being overcast at the start and with several buoys to sight off of.
What would you do differently?:

nothing given my current fitness...need to get faster though.
Transition 1
  • 02m 1s

no problems..middle of the pack for my age group.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe go sockless but I haven't tried that yet in training.
  • 46m 13s
  • 15 miles
  • 19.47 mile/hr

About 2/3's into the race I braked going around a corner. The rear brake on my DA4 started rubbing the tire. I thought about stopping but there were people right behind me. Stupid me...should have found a place to stop because it trashed my legs. Stopping would have cost me 20-30 seconds .... could have made that time up with free rolling wheel and fresher legs for the run.
What would you do differently?:

see above
Transition 2
  • 01m 14s

7th out of 18 ... not bad.
  • 36m 26s
  • 4 miles
  • 09m 07s  min/mile

Legs were trashed to start the run. See brake issue above. The hills beat me to a pulp. I was hurting pretty bad at mile 1. I finally found a stride I could live with at mile 2 and pushed it toward the end.
What would you do differently?:

The brake rubbing issue with the bike caused problems on the bike and run. Bike fitness/pacing was probably an issue too since I spent most of the early season gearing up for my first marathon.
Post race
Warm down:

Watermelon, orange slices, water, soda, was starting to get warm!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Early season marathon limited my cycling. Equipment issues caused some problems. I need to find some extra speed on the run.

Event comments:

They put on a spread post-race spread with plenty to eat and drink. I'll be back.
