Pre-race routine:

Got up at 3:00 a.m. and drove down to get there before packet pickup closed at 6:00 a.m. (It didn't! But I got a good rack spot.)
Event warmup:

Watched the Olympic triathletes start, and then did a warm-up swim on the west end of the beach. There were millions and millions of nasty flying things buzzing the surface of the lake.

Great swim. I think this was one of my best!

Swim faster.

Comments:

I believe this is my first sub 2:00 T1. A photographer got in my face; I just ignored her. Hopefully, the photos will turn out good!

Nothing.

Those hills kill me.
What would you do differently?:

Ride faster. I need to get better on hills.
Transition 2

Comments:

Had to yell at people to get out of my way.
What would you do differently?:

Be more careful putting on my number. I pulled my belt over my head, and it snapped one of the number holes out, so I had to stick my number under my belt and mess with it a couple of times on the run.

Post race
Warm down:

Changed my clothes and ate pizza.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My body. I'm just too slow.

Event comments:

Good race, especially for beginners. The bike has a pretty big hill, both going out and coming back, but otherwise, the course is pretty flat and easy.

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!

Athletes were buzzing around, adding last minute things to their transition bags. The sidewalks and grassy areas are filled with spectators and cameras. Announcements were being made.
