Boulder, Colorado
United States
World Triathlon Corp
80F / 27C
Total Time = 3h 21m 25s
Overall Rank = 791/
Age Group = F45-49
Age Group Rank = 53/66
Pre-race routine:

Woke up early to drive to Boulder. Ate a hard boiled egg, banana, coffee, and 2 packets of almond butter. Gel right before the swim, and 16 oz of Nuun
Event warmup:

Jog to the open portapotties.
  • 38m 21s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 34s / 100 meters

I was very worried about the swim since I hadn't had as much practice as I would have liked. I went out conservatively, which was smart. I picked it up a bit at the end, but inhaled some water which slowed me down a little.
What would you do differently?:

Train more, relax, swim faster
Transition 1
  • 04m 1s

It looks like a long time but the times in general at T1 were long. I need to bring a second towel to wipe off my feet.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, really
  • 1h 35m 48s
  • 26.04 miles
  • 16.31 mile/hr

Faster than my last Oly!
What would you do differently?:

Train more :)
Transition 2
  • 02m 1s
  • 1h 01m 12s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 09m 52s  min/mile

It was hot! I'm happy with this time- with my foot injury I haven't had a lot of running time, so I'm very happy to come in under 10 minute miles. I also discovered that putting ice down my top helps me run faster when it's really hot! I was pretty done by the end- almost threw up at the finish line, which means I put it all out there.
Post race
Warm down:

Walking around, driving mom home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training, as always.

How do you train for an A-race that is six months away? How do you peak for multiple A-races?

It was literally seconds after I started swimming that I felt the tightness in my chest. I couldn’t get a deep breath in due to the tightness of my wetsuit. I was being strangled by my wetsuit...

The Boulder Peak bike course is legendary. It is, literally and named as such, one of the toughest bike legs in the country.
