Total Time = 1h 37m 56s
Overall Rank = 11/186
Age Group = 40-45
Age Group Rank = 2/21
Pre-race routine:

ATe a pack of oatmeal and a banana, drove to teh race, 75 min away
Event warmup:

rode 2 miles, swam 100m
  • 12m 52s
  • 800 meters
  • 01m 37s / 100 meters

Swim went OK. I haven't done any short time trial swims, so was expecting it to be slow. I think the course was shorter than advertised, though. Got to the first and second buoys well, could tell I Was passing a lot of people. Got a bit off course on the finla leg in, but finished strong, and was a couple of minutes faster than last year
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 00m 54s

This went well. ~250yd run up the beach to T1. Slipped on shoes quickly and was off.
What would you do differently?:

  • 51m 48s
  • 18 miles
  • 20.85 mile/hr

Ride went well. I was able to keep it right at the red line without going over. I was 3 min faster than last year, having done NO speed training during hte IM build up. I was thrilled with this ride.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 44s

This went OK. Had to fumble with new helmet clip for a couple of seconds, but otherwise it went smoothly. NO socks, just slid on the PI shoes
What would you do differently?:

  • 31m 41s
  • 4 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

Run went well. I knew there were at least 3 of my age groupers in front of me, and could see 4-5 people in front of me coming out of T1. I was able to catch all of them before I got to the woods. Caught 3 more people coming back in the road. SLowed a littel on the hilly trails. Kept it steady all the way, though. I flet like I was going faster than I did, but I still had the 9th fastest run time out of everyone, so I guess I'm happy with that. Again, I was able to keep it just below the redline without going over it. Finished strong
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

walked the bike back to the car, got a quick bite to eat, and drove home to shower and head back to Nashville.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Good smaller race. Easy, flat course with a mostly shaded run. This was my 3rd year to do it, and I will keep coming back for it. Post race spread was nice with red beans and rice with chicken or sausage, along with plenty of fruit, etc. Close enough to Memphis as well, so you don't have to get up horribly early to get there in time.
