Pre-race routine:

Friday night packet pick though we had to pick up Y in the morning. Y got in from Alabama around 1:00am. Up at 6 to get Willie going. Left house 7:15. Got there with Y getting her packet about 8ish. Still got it. Set up transition in about 3 minutes if this.
Event warmup:

Swim out to start line and joked with Jeremy about falling out of the kayak.
  • 12m 31s
  • 750 yards
  • 01m 40s / 100 yards

First tri since IM. First sprint in a couple years. I had gotten a few swims in but not enough to call it training. I was way right on start straight shot to first buoy. There was a few out front and we had lots of room until the finish. Then Jim wanted to go over top of me. We were 5 yds from the finish. We fought in to the stand part and come out together. I let him up as he runs faster and I knew I would be slower. Overall was a good swim. I thank my mom for all the lessons and getting us swimming early so it natural.
What would you do differently?:

Visit Master swimming more.
Transition 1
  • 02m 26s

Hadn't done this for a while. IM you can take your time a little. This is get and go. It went well with things flowing smoothly. I have barefoot much so running in was hard and I ways in. Run out with bike was OK. Kinda forgot how to get on in a hurry. The worse part was trying to stay out of the way of the bikers trying to get their feet into their shoes.
  • 57m 17s
  • 16.1 miles
  • 16.86 mile/hr

The bike been doing a little more of that. Still trying to get a fat guy to roll uphill takes a lot of effort. Rolling downhill much better. I was hoping for under and hour and got it. About 5 miles out I last the ability to shift to my big ring. That slowed me a little. Must of got past by 2 doz chicks in pink outfits of some kind.
What would you do differently?:

Drop the Twinkies I'm trying to pedal uphill.
Transition 2
  • 03m 23s

Went ok. Had to sit to get shoes on. Ran out and it felt good. That would be short lived.
  • 36m 5s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 38s  min/mile

Flat but rough. Its all pitted pavement. I have been running that stretch for a number of years sometime twice. I will some day enjoy running on that stretch. I was walking and running. No plan just pick it up and then walk it some. Usually man the rest stop. Little sad not having music and bacon frying.
Post race
Warm down:

Met Y at the finish. Had to wait for water. Got a bagel and a chocolate ice cream cone for Y. Went and got bike.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Twinkies, tacos, ice cream.

Event comments:

One of the best races around. Was locally owned and managed. Was sold out a few years ago. Still run very well but lost a little of its personality. Missed seeing Jeff around.
