Pre-race routine:

Pre-race meeting at 6AM, wait around for start time.
  • 07m 6s
  • 330 yards
  • 02m 09s / 100 yards

It's in a pool. Nice! If you can't finish it in 9.5 minutes, you get out anyway and get a penalty of 1 minute per length not completed.
What would you do differently?:

Practice more. Magically develop some technique.
Transition 1

Significant improvement over last year.
  • 36m 45s
  • 11 miles

Transition 2
  • 00m 53s

Another improvement over last year.
  • 32m 54s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 35s  min/mile

Thought I was running faster and pushing myself, but actually was quite slow. I guess I was getting delusional at the end. It's an easy course.
What would you do differently?:

The run is my weak point. I guess I will be working on that this winter!
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough training!

Event comments:

This is a great race for all levels of ability. The wave starts mean that even the slowest person won't be last over the finish line. It is well-organized and people are very friendly. Love it!
