Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4:45 and had coffee and one pack of oatmeal. Loaded up my Dad's truck and headed to the race site. Once there, I picked up my race packet, set up my transition area. Nothing too exciting here.
Event warmup:

Did a quick, real quick run just to try and stretch out the legs. Put on my wetsuit and left the transition area as it was closing. I did get a little swim in and felt how quick the tide was moving.
  • 24m 15s
  • 1094 yards
  • 02m 13s / 100 yards

I tried something new. I started it off as a modify free style stroke keeping my head out of the water to stear around the washer machine. I felt that worked well and I got into my regular swim after 50-100 yards. I turned at the turn around and kicked someone hard on accident. I felt bad about that.

Heading back I kinda feel off my pace about 3/4 of the swim. I thought I would be able to do this in 20 minutes, so my swim workouts were around 15-20 minutes. So, that explains why I felt really fatigue after 15-20 minutes in the swim.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 03m 13s

It was a long run up to the transition area, but right next to the bike exit.
What would you do differently?:

Practice transitions.
  • 34m 24s
  • 9.3 miles
  • 16.22 mile/hr

Good bike overall. I didn't throw up on the big hill, which I did the previous two years. However, I felt great at parts of the ride and my legs were just cooked at other parts. Kinda weird. I felt good at the end of the ride heading into the transition area. So, that was a bonus.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Transition 2
  • 02m 27s

Well, this was a good time since I had to run about a quarter of a mile from the bike entrance to my rack and to the run start. Anyway, I was really confused because I went to the right row for my rack, then I was standing in front of a white towel noticing that it wasn't my stuff. Oh, I went one rack too far and then found my stuff and was out.
What would you do differently?:

Not pass my rack and stand infront of someone's stuff looking dumbfounded.
  • 25m 32s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 14s  min/mile

I was worried about the run because my BRicks have been really painful. Luckily I felt great and I started to really build my pace on the downhill around 2 miles in. Finished up real strong.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe pick up the pace earlier, but I was worried about my running, well hard effort running, endurance. Train more, notice the trend.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around grabed some water and a banana and a bagel. Went home to my parents house where we had a nice brunch with a lot of my family coming to visit. It was a great day.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training. But I wanted to get back into weight training after Patriot, so I've cut back on all of my Tri training. Maybe next year I'll try to have more of a balance between the two.

Event comments:

It's a huge race, but a lot of fun. I've done it the past 4 years and I plan on doing it my entire Tri career.
