Hudson, Illinois
United States
75F / 24C
Total Time = 1h 25m 28s
Overall Rank = 132/341
Age Group = Clydesdales
Age Group Rank = 3/19
Pre-race routine:

Drive 1:30 to race site.
Event warmup:

Set up transition, stretch, consume a Huma Gel.
  • 12m 40s
  • 600 yards
  • 02m 07s / 100 yards

Felt really slow on this swim. Guess I need to get in the pool some more.
What would you do differently?:

Training more would be a good start.
Transition 1
  • 02m 16s

Long run in transition with sensitive feet was not fun.
  • 37m
  • 13 miles
  • 21.08 mile/hr

Legs felt sluggish the first 5 miles. Finally started to come around. Had someone draft off me for a good 4 miles. Only saw 1 course marshall, but this was before the drafting asshole caught my wheel.
Transition 2
  • 01m 37s
  • 31m 52s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 17s  min/mile

Need to get my run training back to where it was earlier in the year at 40+ mile/week. Couldn't get the legs to turnover as fast as I would've liked.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of time to train. Working 12+ hours a day is starting to catch up with me.

Event comments:

This is probably one of the best ran races in the Midwest. Good competition, good course, and plenty of volunteers.
