Parris Island, South Carolina
United States
Set Up Events
Total Time = 1h 14m 37s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = W 45-49
Age Group Rank = 3/10
Pre-race routine:

Arrive at site early, set up transition. Eat yogurt with Hammer Gel about an hour before race (a little later than I had planned) and then a Hammer Gel 15 minutes before swim start.
  • 10m 50s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 10s / 100 meters

Had trouble passing - everyone was getting bunched up
Started by running and jumping into pool instead of starting in water
Transition 1
  • 01m 20s

One of my fastest T1s ever. Just put on helmet and shoes and got bike out of there.
  • 35m 52s
  • 10 miles
  • 16.73 mile/hr

A bit disappointed that my speed wasn't faster but probably due to the wind and rough roads. Happy with my power - strongest that it's been. I was trying not to push it too hard.
What would you do differently?:

Practice turns and cornering. Ride more.
Transition 2
  • 01m 41s

Still having hat issues - I waste time putting it on because it's on top of my shoes.
What would you do differently?:

Put hat on while running
  • 24m 56s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 59s  min/km

Nice run, passed a lot of people, it was fun. Never felt like I was going too hard
Post race
Warm down:

Some stretching. Ate some really good barbecue sandwiches.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

General lack of training. Also may have been tired - not good sleep the night before

Event comments:

Great race - so well organized! Nice to be on a military base and have the support of the Marine Corps. Beautiful course.
