80F / 27C
Total Time = 1h 42m 53s
Overall Rank = 253/620
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 28/51
Pre-race routine:

Got in the water for a 100 yd swim and to get acclimated to the water - 56 degrees = too cold!
  • 11m 7s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 22s / 100 yards

I severely overswam the first turn (by about 100 yards) as I could not see anything out of my googles. Still ended up with a decent time and first in my age group. I probably swam too hard as I realized I missed the turn and wanted to make up some time - oops!
What would you do differently?:

pop the googles up sooner to see where I was
Transition 1
  • 03m 8s

T1 went very well with the exception of not being able to clip in for the first 25 ft of the bike.
What would you do differently?:

need to practice clipping in...only had the clip ins for a week.
  • 59m 27s
  • 18 miles
  • 18.17 mile/hr

I am just not very good at the bike and need to train more. I do not feel like I hydrated enough. This was an OK time for me considering I had just bought my clip-ins and had only been out on my bike 3 times before the race
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s
What would you do differently?:

Not much - my time was fine though I cant jump off a moving bike at this point.
  • 27m 51s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 57s  min/mile

Felt like I was going to be sick the entire time. Do not think I ate or drank enough bf or during the event. I had been running 7 1/2 - 8 min miles in training (3-6 mile pace)
What would you do differently?:

Need to hydrate and eat better - lost 6 lbs.
Post race
Warm down:

Went into the water - what felt cold bf felt great after! Gatorade and Water...ummm ummm good.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

nutrition, own fault

Event comments:

I met so many nice people and the volunteers and police were wonderful....all in all a very fun day!
