For me, a great swim. I kept a constant stroke pace, didn't backstroke, and weaved around slower swimmers pretty easily. Rounding bouys was uneventful...surrounded by very courteous racers. Again, for me, a very fun swim segment.
Do to low fish count in lake this year, seaweed(or whatever it was)presence was constant, but not yucky.
Transition 1
  • 02m 22s

Overall smooth, but I could have been faster. I was in the middle of the transition area, so running with bike was not too bad.
What would you do differently?:

Less toweling off, faster into shoes, put shades into mt Bento box and put on after I get going.
  • 39m 48s
  • 13 miles
  • 19.60 mile/hr

The fastest bike speed of my short triathlon career. Obviously there's always room for improvement, but I was happy with my performance.
Transition 2
  • 01m 51s

I owe #193 a huge apology... as I was moving right to dismount my bike from a complete stop, the guy to my right fell into me (and stayed upright) causing me to fall left into #193 before I could unclip. I don't think she fell down but I did hit her while I went completely "turtle" embarrassing! Badly cut left knee resulted.
What would you do differently?:

Unclip both shoes as I coast to dismount line.
  • 27m 20s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 47s  min/mile

For me a stellar run.
Post race
Warm down:

Pizza and Starbuck's Ice Tea

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training was subpar, weight was up a bit from ideal.

Event comments:

I love this race! Great organization, great volunteers, great course!
I can't wait until next year!
