View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Pasco, Washington
United States
3 Rivers Road Runners
90F / 32C
Total Time = 1h 43m 2s
Overall Rank = 104/123
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 3/4
Event warmup:

Picked up sticks along the T1 run route.
  • 18m 12s
  • 880 yards
  • 02m 04s / 100 yards

Good swim. I knew what to expect this time and went out into deep water and WATCHED for the horn to blow, so I was ready for it. I stayed out deep and didn't get caught in the rocks.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Swim faster.
Transition 1
  • 02m 45s

Long run from the river to transition.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster. 43/121
  • 44m 41s
  • 12 miles
  • 16.11 mile/hr

Didn't feel like I was riding as fast as I did last year. I felt like I was at the back of the pack and not going so fast.
What would you do differently?:

Ride faster.
Transition 2
  • 00m 31s

Good T2.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. I rocked it. 13/121
  • 36m 53s
  • 3 miles
  • 12m 17s  min/mile

It was really hot. As in, close to triple digits. I carried two squishy water bottles filled with PowerAde in my jersey pockets and drank those, rather than slowing down at the aid stations. Had kids throw water on me as I ran through the aid stations.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster. My Garmin wasn't giving me any data, so no encouragement from technology, and it was way too bloody hot.
Post race
Warm down:

28/42 women. Jumped in the river for about 20 minutes or so.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My body and the heat.

Event comments:

These folks put on GREAT races! Very well organized, and yet low key and family friendly.

Training with a power meter will make sure that you are spending every minute on the bike effectively. Racing with a power meter will keep you humble and in your proper zones on race day.

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.
