Total Time = 21m 11s
Overall Rank = 11/181
Age Group = M 35-39
Age Group Rank = 7/15
Event warmup:

Swam the 1 mile race at 7:00; quick trip to the car to change for 8:00 run start.
  • 21m 11s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 49s  min/mile

New PR and first time under 22 minutes. Wasn't sure how I'd feel after finishing the swim. Took out mile 1 at a nice clip and then waited to see what happened over the middle stretch. Polar auto lap showed another quick split at mile two, and the flat course made it easy to bear down from there. Ran the last mile in a little pocket between the lead group and the rest of the pack. Negative splits. Passed by none.
What would you do differently?:

That was about perfect for me.

Warm down:

Some water and a bit of walking to cool down. Chatted with WaterDog66 (Tim) who ran the 5K as a warmm-up for his other 5K (swim, that is).
