The swim was a mass start so the pushing, pulling and shoving in the washing machine was expected. By the second loop everything has thinned out so I could focus on the swim and not ervyone else.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. I had a great swim.
Transition 1
  • 06m 48s

I changed cloths and put on cycling bibs. Wanted to be comfortable for the 112 mike journey.
What would you do differently?:

  • 7h 45m
  • 112 miles
  • 14.45 mile/hr

There are 6 memorable hills including sugarloaf mountain.
What would you do differently?:

I trained by heart rate , and I was feeling so good in the first lap. I paid for it dearly as the heat hit the 90s on the second lap. My legs started cramping so bad that I had to walk up sugarloaf on the third lap.
Transition 2
  • 09m 15s

Changed into some shorts from my bibs
What would you do differently?:

My legs were hurting and I was happy to get off the bike and start the run
  • 8h 22m
  • 26.2 miles
  • 19m 10s  min/mile

I was able to run about a mile until my legs started to cramp and lock up. I tried to walk run for about 5 miles until I could no longer run without my legs immediately locking up. Thanks to some folks who helped pull my cramps out. By mile 9, I started to loose the ability to walk. I did finish but missed the cut off.
What would you do differently?:

I did loop one on the bike way too fast, which ended up destroying my run.
