Dousman, Wisconsin
United States
80F / 27C
Total Time = 1h 25m 12s
Overall Rank = 109/
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 4/26
Pre-race routine:

pb&j and a banana. Set up transition and hung out at the beach. Posed for some pics with my friends. I have attached my favorite pic that the even photog captured.
Event warmup:

Slip into the sausage casing and drank a 5 hour energy. Dipped my face in the water to make sure goggles weren't leaking.
  • 08m 49s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 12s / 100 meters

I felt good in this swim. Definitely thought I was faster than this. Oh well, it was fine. I was catching bubbles and passing people. That's always nice.
What would you do differently?:

Work on my swimming more.
Transition 1
  • 02m 19s

I'm ok with this t time. It includes a run from the beach.
What would you do differently?:

  • 46m 33s
  • 15 miles
  • 19.33 mile/hr

It was hard to catch my breath coming out of t1 but eventually I settled down and started to put the hammer down. I the fact that we had our age on our calf so I knew who I was passing. I encouraged everyone as I went by. I hope this doesn't offend anyone because I am truly being encouraging and not rubbing it in. So happy with how my biking is coming along this year.
Transition 2
  • 01m 57s

Jello legs after pushing it but I felt good.
What would you do differently?:

quick of these days I'll remember to get some.
  • 25m 36s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 16s  min/mile

WHew it was a steamy one. Again, I couldn't catch my breath coming out of t2 and just pushed the RPM's. I didn't wear a garmin and the mile markers seemed so far apart. Running on the road was torture with the hot blazing sun and high humidity. I am so pleasantly surprised with my split. I had no idea I was running this pace. I just tried to push it and hold on. Favorite comment was "I hope I look as strong as you when I'm 45". HA!
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Walked back to the course to cheer on Clint and a few other friends that were racing. Drank some water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Swim performance.

Event comments:

Yummy cousins subs for lunch with various sides. Beer from the Delafield Brewhaus.

I'm doing the 22 week sprint tri program and the 2 mile bike ride it starts with is not very challenging. I see this as a opportunity to train the right way and challenge myself. Any ideas?

This past spring I realized a few of us were heading in the wrong direction physically. We were getting together for poker games and kids’ birthdays, but that was it.

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

So someone convinced you to get off the couch and truck-it to the finish line. Now what? Here's a look at the process from admiring others to inspiring others.
