  • 02m 03s / 100 yards
Comments:

Really had a bad time keeping a straight line. Could not get around anyone without spending too much energy or having to go around their other side.
What would you do differently?:

Probably get out to a safe distance on outside of course to avoid crashing into people
Transition 1
  • 02m 22s
Comments:

Had trouble putting helmet and race belt on before being able to unrack and hit the road. Also, shoes would not let me slide in and hit the hill before I had my 2nd shoe on.
What would you do differently?:

Mentally run thru how to execute in T2 so I have a fresh game-plan in my head. Wasted too much time wondering if I had everything on before leaving.
Bike
  • 40m 11s
  • 10.68 miles
  • 15.95 mile/hr
Comments:

Did not have the extra gear(s) on this bike leg! I felt tired and overwhelmed by the course. Definitely feeling lack of training showing it's ugly head.
Transition 2
  • 01m 44s
Comments:

T2 went off a lot better but still took my time and used the break to catch my breath
Run
  • 25m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 23s  min/mile
Comments:

Felt sluggish still from the bike and never really recovered. Just felt flat on this race.
Post race
Warm down:

Lots of water, and fruit from post-race tent

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not sure what to put this on, outside of lack of specific training. I felt flat the entire race and never snapped out of it.

Event comments:

While a lot of people like to rag on the Sommer Sports Clermont series, I think you get what you pay for and more. The race(s) is/are on schedule, transition is organized and safe, the course is well-known especially to drivers and residents, and you know what to expect coming in. In the age of overpriced and under-delivered races, this series is something you can definitely enjoy.
