54F / 12C
Total Time = 1h 23m 35s
Overall Rank = 209/321
Age Group = M 60-64
Age Group Rank = 13/15
  • 06m 59s
  • 275 yards
  • 02m 32s / 100 yards

Solid swim, came out with a better than anticipated time. Followed my stroking plan pretty much to the letter. Seemed like I was reaching the walls much faster than I expected.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, good swim.
Transition 1
  • 02m 10s

Location was all the way in the back, almost as far from the Swim in entrance as possible. Jogged the whole way. Pretty solid T1.
What would you do differently?:

  • 38m 29s
  • 11.5 miles
  • 17.93 mile/hr

Solid bike ride, Felt fast on the first loop, little slower second time around but I think they were actually pretty comparable. One long pretty tough hill, handled it well, I thought. Rode "easy" for first five minutes, then pushed at race pace for the next 30. Finished more or less coming up that long hill, bled off a little time getting shoes undone and feet out.
What would you do differently?:

Not much
Transition 2
  • 01m 53s

First race with the new Zoot shoes. I thought they worked pretty well, though my feet were kind of like little ice blocks coming off the bike. Right little toe kept getting caught in a separation of the lining while trying to get the shoe on. Happened twice so I finally just sat down to get the shoe on properly, probably cost me 15-25 seconds.
What would you do differently?:

Need to practice getting the right shoe on. Can't balance on left leg like I can on my right, so this shoe is always difficult. If I get this on without the little toe issues, I beat previous (adjusted) time.
  • 34m 4s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 59s  min/mile

At this point I'm just hoping to get a 5K done in roughly 34 minutes, so mission accomplished here, sort of. Garmin showed I ran 3.18, for a pace of 10:43. Sure seems I could do better than that, but afterwards, the device said I "Overreached" for the day!
What would you do differently?:

Just keep training, I guess. Last 2-3 tri seasons my runs have gotten consistency slower. Probably be complaining about it next year too.
Post race
Event comments:

Only slightly late, about five minutes, while they waited for police authorities to get into position and clear the course. Otherwise another classic DAR operation.
