Pre-race routine:

Got up early and made my way over to the race site. Traffic was horrible getting into the venue.
Event warmup:

Walked around, chatted with friends.Then got in the water and did about a 200m warm up.
  • 27m 48s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 51s / 100 meters

The site buoys didn't seem to be lined up really well, so made sure to site off the turn buoy as much as I could. Started on the far right and made a start push to get out in front of the people to my left. There was very little contact so I feel I did a good job. Made the turns pretty well and had a good line into the swim exit. Wasn't many people to draft off as they were following the buoys.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m 54s

It was a long run into transition and I was closer to the bike exit. Got there and dried feet, got shoes and helmet on and got on out.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 12m 27s
  • 24.8 miles
  • 20.54 mile/hr

Was having a good ride on the way out. Then came the big ass hill. It was small chainring and biggest cassette. At the turn around, I realized I had a tailwind and was now going into a headwind. Pushed hard and flew down the steep hill on the way back.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 02m 20s

Good dismount and quick into my rack. Got running shoes on and grabbed my hat and made my way to the exit.
What would you do differently?:

  • 48m 18s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 07m 47s  min/mile

Had a good 1st loop. Then the hip started hurting. I think it was all the time sitting on my drive. Also had to stop to use the port-o-potties at about mile 4. That probably killed a minute. Would have been right where I wanted to be if that didn't happen.
What would you do differently?:

Lose weight
Post race
Warm down:

Sat in the cold pool. Meet up with some friends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Raced started 30mins late because of people still trying to get into the venue. If it had been hot that would have killed some races.
