Mays Landing, New Jersey
United States
Total Time = 1h 14m 47s
Overall Rank = 172/301
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 3/16
Pre-race routine:

oatmeal & coffee at the beach before the ride down. Also, not included in the normal routine but did it today - left both water bottles on kitchen table. Won't be doing that again!!!
Event warmup:

umm, did arm circles for 2 seconds?? ran around trying to find water.
  • 08m 32s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 56s / 100 yards

started sighting every 7 strokes, quickly decided to make it every 5 b/c I was swimming WAY off course. Wound up sighting every 4 - on the way back in the sun was directly in my eyes and my goggles were completely foggy - had to take off goggles to sight. On the bright side, my next swim should be much faster.
What would you do differently?:

Sight every 4 or 5 strokes, take care of foggy goggle syndrome.
Transition 1
  • 01m 58s

First time I was aware of wanting to go get onto bike quickly - wanted to keep Mike behind me as long as I could. Did OK - more room for improvements.
What would you do differently?:

no socks, maybe no shirt?? Have my own water bottles that actually work so I don't have to suck the water out so much. It was hard to drink while being out of breath from the swim.
  • 31m 42s
  • 10.2 miles
  • 19.31 mile/hr

AAGGGGHHHH Mike caught me right before turnaround. My goal was to get to the turnaround before he caught me. I stayed with him for the second half and actually passed a fair amount of people. Good for the confidence. :)

My cadence was fast - my mantra was "keep Mike back" the whole 5 miles. It almost worked.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really - I biked fast for me, took the turns fairly well and shifted pretty appropriately, I think. Oh, have my own water bottles. The one I had was HORRIBLE!
Transition 2
  • 02m 36s

Into T2 with Mike - laced up fought with water bottle and went.
What would you do differently?:

The water bottle thing really bothered me again - easy to fix, though.
  • 29m 59s
  • 3.2 miles
  • 09m 22s  min/mile
What would you do differently?:

Try to increase speed steadily as I get my breathing back under control from T2.
Post race
Warm down:

Ate a pretzel, drank lots of water and iced tea & high tailed it home for Katie's first b-day party.

Should have stuck around for awards ceremony b/c I got one!!! So, so, so excited!!!!

Event comments:

Came in over 5 mins. faster than my goal time of 1:20 - good race for me :)
