Pre-race routine:

Ken and I took the RV up Friday got up to there at 3 or so, First packet pick up that had beer tasting nice. Got back had some chicken and beer. Nice camp site and quiet. So off toe bed about 10.
Event warmup:

Saw Ken off on the Oly wave and spent ten minute trying to squeeze my sweaty body into a little to small wet suit then got in the water to get it wet inside. Took a couple strokes after we were able to get in the water.
  • 34m 54s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 39s / 100 yards

Wasn't able to get up front. Started row back. Bad choice. Got mixed up with all kinds of people. Took half way out the first leg to get to the front of the pack and some room. Its basically a triangular out, short across and back.
Coming back is a bitch. I did remember not to leave my goggles in the porta pottie this time.
What would you do differently?:

Position better.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Got caught in the wait for traffic. After hitting the pp, At least no one was screaming and yelling that it was unfair.
What would you do differently?:

Move faster.
  • 3h 27m 7s
  • 56 miles
  • 16.22 mile/hr

It was a ride. to fat on the up hills nice fast descents down. Some where around 3000ft of climbing. Only a couple stiff hills rest good rollers. There is one spot where I swear its downhill but you have to gear way up. Weird. One ahole out there could figure if he wanted to go slow or fast. Would pass him then he would come back then he was drafting off someone. then he took off for 15 miles i had to pass him a mile from the bike finish.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Oh what fun you can have when you don't want to run. Change my shorts, shirts and socks shoes. Head to porta potty the return to bike to get knee brace. Pay for pizza I had delivered and generally fuck around till Ken saw and I finally had to go run this thing.
  • 3h 18m
  • 13.1 miles
  • 15m 07s  min/mile

Course is a little different this year. They took out two long stretches that were e a real drag. Nice. I also knew this run would be a little bit of a drag. After a mile I figured the best way to make this a positive run then spread a little positive. Cheered on everyone I passed. Worked a bit.
Post race
Warm down:

Got a picture with my medal and then walked to the beer tent.

Seems to be a theme here.  Might explain my results too, but boy the beer was good! 

I had lots of fun!  Thanks!

Nice race!

Good race!

Yeah, you are too strong a swimmer to get stuck in the back of the pack with people who swim like me.  

Solid bike, even for the idiot that drafted at times....

Not wanting to run, this is a common theme.

I found a sprint, the Lake Las Vegas Triathlon, that was happening four months down the road and signed myself up; much to the surprise of friends and family.

I have Bontrager Race Lite wheels. I was looking into renting Zipp 303's or 404's for race day for Ironman Lake Placid. What time will I save?

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.

A description of my experiences during my first triathlon. It was a great experience. I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been.
