Innsbrook, Missouri

Age Group Rank = 9/9
Pre-race routine:

Got out to the race site about 5:30 since I knew parking would be an issue. Sat in the car and had breakfast while I waited for the sun to come up and transition to open.
Event warmup:

Not much - my race didn't start until an hour after the 70.3'ers went off so just watched some of the swim then got my wetsuit on and waited for my wave start.
  • 12m 39s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 32s / 100 meters

Actually not a bad swim for me. Wish I would have gone without the wetsuit though - the water was warm enough and I haven't worn the suit since spring - felt a little constricted in it.
What would you do differently?:

Not wear the wetsuit and maybe start a little further up. I lined up at the back but kept running into people.
Transition 1
  • 07m 59s

This included a long run uphill from the beach to transition. Still, I could have moved faster. The wetsuit got stuck on my legs and I took a little time to settle my HR before hitting the hills on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Move a little faster and I need to work on getting the wetsuit off faster.
  • 1h 27m 13s
  • 19 miles
  • 13.07 mile/hr

I really need to learn how to ride hills. I had to get off and walk a couple of the steeper hills. Other than that I had a pretty good ride. I also need to get better at drinking while riding.
What would you do differently?:

Honestly, for my fitness level and hill-riding ability, this was pretty good for me. I would like to get better at hills before next year though.
Transition 2
  • 01m 50s

T2 is always pretty quick for me since I don't have to change to running shoes.
What would you do differently?:

  • 42m 28s
  • 3.4 miles
  • 12m 29s  min/mile

Walked the bigger uphills, ran the smaller ones and as much of the flats and downhills as I could. I've been having some Achilles issues lately so tried to go a bit easier.
What would you do differently?:

Like the bike, more hill training.
Post race
Warm down:

Got some food, met up with the tri club and waited for the other members doing the longer races to come in.

Event comments:

I love this race - I volunteered at it for several years before doing it this year. Ultramax always puts on a great event.

Most triathlons in America are held under USA Triathlon sanctioning. Last year I finally got a national ranking. Here are a few reasons to join.

Club or group workouts are very motivating and soon you’ll start feeling like a triathlete, making you less likely to flake out.

Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.
