Dallas Athletes
35F / 2C
Total Time = 1h 12m 32s
Overall Rank = 70/354
Age Group = 55-59
Age Group Rank = 4/20
Pre-race routine:

Was going to not go because of the cold weather but woke up at 4:30am and decided to go anyway. What the heck.
Event warmup:

Swam a few hundred yards
  • 04m 57s
  • 275 yards
  • 01m 48s / 100 yards

Spacing was great. Mostly no traffic. Passed a few people and no one caught me.
Transition 1
  • 03m 5s

It was freezing cold going to T1. Had to put on a jacket, hat and gloves before taking off.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Could have tried to go without the jacket, hat and gloves but may have died.
  • 36m 26s
  • 10.8 miles
  • 17.79 mile/hr

It was freezing cold riding at 20mph. Couldn't feel my feet on the last lap and my speed dropped some. The cold weather was a definitive issue.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 16s

My rack was right next to the run out exit. Left my jacket, hat and gloves on.
What would you do differently?:

  • 26m 46s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 38s  min/mile

My feet were so cold coming off the bike that they felt like blobs of concrete. Never thawed out until close to the end. Never stopped at an aid station. Wasn't really necessary when it's 35 degrees outside.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Not really relevant. It was freezing cold

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The cold.
