Nothing--I got out there early and started up near the front and away I went! It was great!

Loved the bike, felt great and pushed hard. I really feel like cycling has definitely become my strongest section. I loved it, loved pushing, loved passing people from earlier swim waves!
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, I pushed just hard enough for my fitness without having it kill my run. Felt fabulous!

Another good transition for me, not speediest but fine for me.

Post race
Warm down:

Hung out with Katie from BT and some of her tri group! It was a great race and really enjoyed meeting all the new people through Katie.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Genetics, my standard answer! Ha!

Event comments:

Absolutely love the Spudman! I really hoped to end this race season on an up and I sure did! When I did this race two years ago my finish time was 2:54--this time 2:39--two years older and wiser made the difference! Had a great day out there!

Congrats on breaking the 2:40 "barrier"! You've beaten me to it! Maybe I need to find a race with a downstream swim! At any rate, a very impressive race, esp. the bike split. 1:10 is just incredible. I would scream for joy if I could be within 5-6 minutes of that. Hope you enjoy a well-earned break and look forward to your successes next season.

Great job. Nice bike time. I did this one last year and it is one of the funnest triathlons I have ever done. Well-run, beautiful surroundings and super fast course. The only thing I didn't like was the part where you have to cross over the bike traffic and run over railroad tracks. But other than that the course was awesome. I'll prbably do it again next year.
