Pre-race routine:

Dad swam for us. At age 63 this is probably the only race I will every do with him. He loves to swim and cycle, but I have never seen him run and doubt he will take up any sport. Much less Triathlon
  • 19m 54s
  • 500 meters
  • 03m 59s / 100 meters

Dad was the slowest swim of the day out of all the team and individuals. It was great to see him in the race though. He may not have been fast and may not have been racing, but he was NOT the weakest swimmer in the pool. I saw many people walking along the bottom, one with a shark snorkel, etc. Dad swam the who way with out any trouble and with out stopping.
Transition 1
  • 01m

We were about 1 minute on the T1. It looks like that put us #2 out of the 8 teams.
  • 44m 52s
  • 12.5 miles
  • 16.72 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 00m 14s

Note: we had two more male age group kills on the T2
  • 18m 9s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 05m 51s  min/mile

I had my right shoe lace come undone about 3 minutes into the run. It took about 3-5 seconds to retie, but I also broke my pace and had to start out slow and build back up to speed. My goal was to not kill myself for a PR but to achieve a controlled sub 18:00 time. Pacing was pretty good, but the shoe through me off and I probably should have take a hair off the 1/2 mile and push a little harder through mile 2.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

I got a drink of water then grabbed my back and hit the parking lot to get back to my family reunion at Camp Early 20 minutes away.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I was breathing quite hard which would have been due to the altitude. My pre-race nutrition was not timed well either, but over for a goal of running at a 17:55-17:59 I would pretty much spot on considering the shoe problem. With an altitude adjustment I am sure I was at a sum 18:00 effort. I didn't need to go faster but if I had needed to I would have to dig deep at for the last 1.1 miles.

Event comments:

This race is a small local race and was laid back in that there were not assigned order for the swim start, bot electronic timing, no assigned bike locations, no one monitoring who was entering or exiting the Transition areas, no one monitoring who was doing what leg for the teams etc. The event offer the sprint distance and a double sprint which ran the race twice. 2-3 man teams were allowed. Since I was doing this as a non competitive race to do with family I wanted to do a 6 man relay on the double sprint format. There was really nothing that would have prevented us from doing a 6 man team. They had no idea who was doing what on the course. You just yelled out your race number as you went through transition and they punched it into the timing computer. One 55 year old was listed with a 14 min 20 second run time. I am pretty sure he quite early on the run or turned around early by mistake. There was no one recording numbers at the turn around for the bike or run so really this was an event for fun, but not meant to be for serious competition. I enjoyed the event and if I was local would do it every year. Love that it is NOT on Sunday since I don't race on Sundays for religious reasons.

Micheal really smashed the ride. I don't think he has been on a bike for a very long time considering that he had to pull his bike out of storage to bring to the race. He was on a mountain bike with no aero anything and loose running cloths. I am not sure that I would have been able to faster on a mountain bike. Oh...and he counted for 16 kills against the open males and 5 out of the 7 team entries.
