North East, Maryland
United States
CGI Racing
80F / 27C
Total Time = 2h 03m 21s
Overall Rank = 1/373
Age Group = M19&UND
Age Group Rank = 1/5
Pre-race routine:

I woke up at 3:30am, showered, packed the car, and left home at 4:15am. I arrived at the race venue at 5:15am and picked up my packet at 5:30am. I had transition set up by 5:45am, and sat and waited until 7:00am.
Event warmup:

I swam for five minutes beginning at 7:00am. I ran for ten minutes at 7:20am.
  • 25m 20s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 41s / 100 meters

I swam well, but definitely have a lot of work to do this off-season to strengthen this leg. I was six minutes back getting out of the water, and had a lot of time to make up over the next two disciplines.
What would you do differently?:

Become a stronger swimmer.
Transition 1
  • 01m 21s

A quick tranisition. I picked up a few spots in transition alone.
What would you do differently?:

Go faster.
  • 59m 4s
  • 23.2 miles
  • 23.57 mile/hr

Pushed hard and it payed off. One of my best bike performances all year, although I didn't feel as strong on the hills as I have previously. My cadence is what pulled me through it.
What would you do differently?:

Push the downhills harder.
Transition 2
  • 00m 25s

A seemless transition. The race announcer even commented on my transition during the race.
What would you do differently?:

Go faster.
  • 37m 13s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 05m 59s  min/mile

A great run. I passed my competition within the last two miles of the run. They couldn't hang on when I went by them.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Physical ability.

Event comments:

CGI always puts on great events. My only disappointment was the small turnout. I'm sure the race will grow as long as CGI continues to organize races so well.
