Total Time = 2h 10m 3s

Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 23/32
Pre-race routine:

This was my first triathlon in six years and I do not have a pre-race routine.
Event warmup:

I didn't do anything to warm up. It was raining before the event and I was trying to stay under cover.
  • 22m 7s
  • 800 meters
  • 02m 46s / 100 meters

I had a tough time running into people and I was not swimming in a straight line. I never got my breathing down.
What would you do differently?:

I need to get into a routine. I also need to get away from the masses so I can stop getting kicked.
Transition 1
  • 04m 34s

My overall transition was SLOW. I waited for a minute after the swim to try to see if I could see Doug. I also just didn't move very speedy. I was just aiming to finish since I hadn't done one of these in six years.
What would you do differently?:

I would work on speeding everything up.
  • 1h 07m 32s
  • 18 miles
  • 15.99 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s

My transition time here was substantially improved because all I had to do was drop my bike, take off my helmet and go. I didn't wear bike shoes on the ride.
  • 34m 27s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 07s  min/mile

This was definitely the hardest part for me. I was feeling pretty sluggish at the end, but managed to run most of the way.
What would you do differently?:

Train more

What limited your ability to perform faster:
