The Colony, Texas
United States
54F / 12C
Total Time = 1h 07m 9s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = F30-34
Age Group Rank = 4/
Event warmup:

swam 100m, stretching
  • 07m 41s
  • 300 meters
  • 02m 34s / 100 meters

This went horribly. I met with my coach on Friday and he wanted to me to start learning to breathe every stroke on the right instead of every other on the right. This was just a warm up race for the season, so the game plan was to try this breathing pattern during the race. It felt very uncomfortable, likely since I've never done this before.
What would you do differently?:

Practice this more
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 29m 56s
  • 9 miles
  • 18.04 mile/hr

This was a 2 loop course. The right hand lane was closed to traffic. Volunteers and police support was amazing

Transition 2
  • 01m 11s

This went well but was a bit slower than I would have liked. I took a few seconds to slip on socks. I ride without socks but like to run with socks.
  • 26m 46s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 38s  min/mile

This went well. I tried to settle into a good pace off the bike and was a bit fast. Had to slow myself down a tiny bit. Left myself just enough to kick that last 1/2 mile into the finish. They had aid stations approx every mile on the run but I didn't stop any. I took in some water on the bike (that I brought with me.)
Post race
Warm down:

stretching. met up with the Playtri team and took some pictures and tried to stay warm. The cool breeze made me feel colder than it actually was.

Event comments:

Would gladly do this event again. Great support staff. Good number of aid stations. Nice finisher medals.
