Comments:

started at the very front. had a good feeling that I would have a good swim. feel like my swim has improved this year. have always been comfortable in all swims just never really felt I was getting faster in the past. started out faster than normal to get ahead of the pack and then settled in to good pace. the first 5 or 6 of us came out of the water with a pretty good lead from the rest of the chase group

my chip strap broke in 1 spot so I felt my chip dangling while running to my bike. I stopped for about :20 sec to make sure it would hold up the rest of the race. lost a little time doing this but I wanted to be sure it was ok

bike is def the weakest of the 3 disciplines for me..i felt like this was one of my better efforts. I haven't done a sprint since 2011 so was interested to see how it felt to ride with pretty good effort
What would you do differently?:

maybe try to power thru it harder...just don't want to ever tap into my run bank too deep

had a really good dismount and racking the bike....

Comments:

really felt good on the run...I knew I had a few guys to hunt down that passed me on the bike but really wasn't sure how many there were...haven't done a sprint since 2011 so It was awesome to haul some tail in the run..
What would you do differently?:

nothing
Post race
Warm down:

water water...stood around for a bit to get results...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

just getting back in to training this march leading up to imtx 70.3...haven't really don't too much training since the race in april..

started doing TRX with a trainer 2 times a week a month ago and it has really helped in all 3 disciplines

Most people could do this, probably much faster than I could. But the beauty of the event was the energy, to be around so many people who are so motivated and goal-oriented.
