United States
40'sF / 0C
Total Time = 1h 27m 27s
Overall Rank = 262/279
Age Group = 60-64
Age Group Rank = 10/11
Pre-race routine:

Checked in
Pinned the run bib on a tee shirt
Racked bike after inflating the tires
Powered up the Garmin and calibrated power meter
Did a run through at bike rack of what I'd do ... pull off goggles, slip on bike shoes, etc
Stacked items in order of first use ... bike shoes on top, race belt next, hat & shades, etc
Event warmup:

Swam ~200m easy laps in diving pool
  • 08m 22s
  • 300 yards
  • 02m 47s / 100 yards
Transition 1
  • 02m 48s

Put on shoes at the bike (no socks) and ran out of transition. Shoes clipped in smoothly. Pretty good transition for me.
  • 30m 24s
  • 9 miles
  • 17.76 mile/hr

Congestion right by the entrance to transition cost me ~20-25 seconds.
Fairly pleased with the ride- didn't burn all my matches for the run. The congestion at T2 was annoying.
What would you do differently?:

Also could not pull my feet out of my shoes due to the car/people congestion at the entrance to bike finish.
Transition 2
  • 02m 31s

I didn't have my race belt for the run and didn't want to spend the $$ for another one. I pinned the bib onto a tee shirt which cost me ~20-25s to pull on the shirt.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure the run belt is in my gear bag.
  • 43m 24s
  • 5 kms
  • 08m 41s  min/km

For me ... it was ok - slow but ok.
What would you do differently?:

Add volume for run training. Today's time is close to previous times in the event. Better training (esp volume) would help my speed.

Event comments:

This is a good race. The volunteers were great, enthusiastic and helpful. The weather was great ... cold, but after 2-3 mins on the bike I was no longer cold. The one issue with the car/people congestion at the bike finish could be improved. Don't know if others had an issue, but it did affect me.
