Nashville, Tennessee
United States
Team Magic
Total Time = 44m 32s
Overall Rank = 8/350
Age Group = M 30-34
Age Group Rank = 2/30
Pre-race routine:

Woke up early and made some Oatmeal. I had a bottle of Spark to wake me up. Karen woke Izzy up and we headed out the door about about 5:45am.
Event warmup:

Ran about 5 minutes - no bike - no swim.
  • 02m 58s
  • 219 yards
  • 01m 22s / 100 yards

This was absurd. I started 19th and had the 3rd fastest split of the day. I guess I'll have to start lying about my swim times like the people who somehow always end up starting in front of me. This isn't that big of a deal in open water, but in a pool you get stuck behind slower swimmers. I passed one lady who was swimming breaststroke!!!
What would you do differently?:

start farther up. I should have started 1st in this race.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 27m 42s
  • 8.5 miles
  • 18.41 mile/hr

Every year I hope that when I hop on the bike for my first race bike split things will be magically better. I rode okay today, but early on in the ride I knew that I'm about where I was last year on the bike. I need to put more miles in if I want to get faster.
What would you do differently?:

train more.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 13m 25s
  • 2 miles
  • 06m 43s  min/mile

A decent run (the transition time is included in the run split). I realized about half way through though that I'm still not in shape. I started getting that old familiar "about the throw up" feeling.
Post race
Warm down:

none. I grabbed my stuff, some food for Karen and Izzy, and went home.

Event comments:

As always, Team Magic puts on the best races in the country.
