Overall Rank = 255/447

Pre-race routine:

3:40am wakeup. Bagel with PB&J + Banana. Water.
Event warmup:

Ride to course (1.5mi)
  • 34m 19s
  • 1584 yards
  • 02m 10s / 100 yards

Conservative pace. First open water swim. Sucked a little too much water at the turn, wheezed for a few seconds, and got back into it after a little panic.
What would you do differently?:

Push a little harder to finish in top half.
Transition 1
  • 04m 27s

Went OK. Adrenaline pumping pretty hard. Took a little time relaxing.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure
  • 1h 26m
  • 27 miles
  • 18.84 mile/hr

Reroute was at least a couple miles longer than regulation, but doable. State line road sucked bad with crappy road, uphill, and a headwind. Made return trip on BB a breeze though. Flew through hills.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. This was my best leg at a PB pace.
Transition 2
  • 02m 42s

Nothing terrible, just not great.
What would you do differently?:

Move faster.
  • 1h 02m 50s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 10m 08s  min/mile

Hard run for me. Left leg cramping on lower inside quad on uphills and flats. This was not a PB run for me. I sucked.
What would you do differently?:

more speed work and t2 training.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The run.

Event comments:

I've been to 1 other race. It was smaller, but much better run. For the money, I would have expected a better post race event and a more timely start. Volunteers were good, the water safety patrol was excellent.
