Swim went well. Started on the outside of the group and stayed there, for the most part. Not too many issues with other swimmers. Took a good frog kick to the heart monitor, however.
What would you do differently?:

Swim faster.

Comments:

Some rain, some sun, some wind, some not wind, some lightning, some not, some thunder, some not, some overcast, some not. Fought some wind when riding out through the wheat fields, but no wind on the way back. Very crazy weather! Time also includes a stop at the porta potty before crossing the timing mat in front of transition.
What would you do differently?:

Ride faster. I'm just too slow. Everybody was passing me like I wasn't even pedaling. Hate getting passed by overweight people on beach cruisers and mountain bikes!

Comments:

Great T2.

Nothing.

Comments:

My Garmin wasn't working. I tried fiddling with it at the beginning of my run, but it wouldn't work. I don't know what's up with it. So I stuck it in my back pocket and ignored it. It was completely useless and got no data from any part of the race. I have no idea why. So, I just pushed myself as hard as I could. I really hurt! I hurt bad. But I kept pushing myself as hard as I could. This sure beats last year's time, but it's still pretty bad.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed some pizza from the pizza truck, and then a soda from my truck. I hurt really bad. I wish my Garmin would work. They gave out awards for the top five places in each age group, so I got a medal.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My body.

Event comments:

Really well organized. Great race for women of all ages and abilities. (Women only race.) There were lots of women with beach cruisers, mountain bikes, road bikes, and tri bikes.

Have a goal when you get into the water. If your purpose is distance, then set your pace for endurance. If your objective is speed, then incorporate drills.
