Pre-race routine:

I took this a bit more serious than other races to try to minimze possible mistakes. I drove that morning (2.5 hrs) and arrived early enough to be able to relax and take my time getting set up. I timed myself from the door of the swimming pool to the TA just to see how long it would add on to my swim time. I had a bannana and some water for breakfast.
Event warmup:

Stretching running and something new, I actually swam berfore the race to help my warmup!!
  • 09m 14s
  • 500 meters
  • 01m 51s / 100 meters

I was frustrated in the swim because I could not get around people until it was almost too late.
What would you do differently?:

Have better luck as far as who is in front of me!!
Transition 1
  • 00m 54s

T1 was busy and my location didn't help being at the end of the row..
What would you do differently?:

Just be faster.
  • 45m 22s
  • 16 miles
  • 21.16 mile/hr

I was pleased with the bike effort ... I just want to get stronger.
What would you do differently?:

Keep training
Transition 2
  • 01m 11s

I can't believe it but I did it again!! I left my number belt behind and had to run back to get it. This is why my T2 time is so inflated. I could have killed myself!!
What would you do differently?:

Not be a dumb$!@ and get my belt on!!
  • 21m 46s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m  min/mile

The run was hot and humid especially by the time we were finishing. I was pleased with the time for no more running than I do. If I could put in 30 miles a week where would I be?
What would you do differently?:

Train more
Post race
Warm down:

Mountain Dew!!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not strong enough yet to compete with the big boys.

Event comments:

I said I would like to crack into the masters division as far as an award goes and I was lucky enough to do that!! This is good race and as usual setup inc. did a great job w/ the organization of it. I will come back next year if healthy.
