Mahopac, New York
United States
62F / 17C
Total Time = 1h 05m 10s
Overall Rank = 11/144
Age Group = M60-64
Age Group Rank = 1/5
Pre-race routine:

got up pretty early-stayed w Bobby at the Comfort Inn and he likes to get up early and caffeinate; so up at 4ish; usual banana/G2 w nuun/coffee and Boost HN= ~400cal; BR/shower/dress--go
Event warmup:

we went out and swam to the second buoy and back; only about 5 minutes; water was ~72; air was 55 initially; I counted that it was only about 75 strokes from the buoy to the shore; did manage to fall onto a rock and hit my hand; I'm such a klutz
  • 07m 36s
  • 400 yards
  • 01m 54s / 100 yards

so happy with this result-even though my ranking was terrible; I still didn't give up too much time; could not believe that I came out of the water right next to Bobby!
What would you do differently?:

not a thing
Transition 1
  • 02m 33s

out of the water and started to haul up the ~0.25 mile run to T1, feet were freezing from the grass with cold condensation and I couldn't feel my toes for about 20 minutes into the bike; slipped on my cut shoes and RAN
What would you do differently?:

  • 29m 30s
  • 10.4 miles
  • 21.15 mile/hr

had the course to myself for a lot of it; no one to catch/no one passing me after I caught all the faster swimmers from the elite group, which I did pretty quickly
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 39s

got a comment as I was leaving my transition spot from a volunteer- "now that's a transition!"
What would you do differently?:

I was lightning quick--and yet others were still faster, boy oh boy
  • 24m 51s
  • 3.15 miles
  • 07m 53s  min/mile

I could have pushed a bit harder, but didn't want to worsen any injury and my hip still isn't right; plus my left knee has been sore ever since the beach
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

just hung out a bit; drank some fluid/ate a granola bar; chatted with Bobby and a few racers

What limited your ability to perform faster:

didn't want to push super hard on the run

Event comments:

A great race and a great cause! Who doesn't hate pediatric cancer. Extremely well organized. Tons of volunteers. A dozen emails about the athlete's guide/where to park/what was happening/swim waves/directions for which way to go. I very much enjoyed it and loved the venue. A bit of a challenge on the bike but the swim was great and the run had just a bit of bite. A+
