White Bear Lake, Minnesota
United States
White Bear Racquet and Swim
60F / 16C
Total Time = 1h 10m 46s
Overall Rank = 1/45
Age Group = 40-49
Age Group Rank = 1/3
Pre-race routine:

Got there early and got a nice spot to rack. Fraternized with the eventual women's winner. Finished hydrating, hit the biff and headed to the pre-race mtg.

Bike drafting is allowed!
Event warmup:

100 yds of swimming to make sure the goggles were on tight. Got to meet my lane-mate. Thought I was going to have 3 mates, but ended up having just one. Sweet!
  • 09m 58s
  • 600 yards
  • 01m 40s / 100 yards

I just took er easy the whole way. Moderate pace was the best way to describe it. Haven't swam without a wetsuit in a race since May so didn't want to smoke myself.
What would you do differently?:

Got faster!
Transition 1
  • 01m

Time for T1 is approximate as the overall swim time was 10:58. That includes the run from the pool to bike, and hopping on.
What would you do differently?:

Not a whole like. I'd like to know actual T1 time rather than an estimate.
  • 35m 32s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 22.12 mile/hr

I knew I'd have a tail wind going out so I hammered it pretty hard. It took me till mi 6 to pass all of the folks that beat me out of the pool. I never looked back and pushed hard into the wind on the way home.
What would you do differently?:

Since the race was draft legal I'd have like to have had a drafting partner coming back into the wind.
Transition 2
  • 01m

This is an estimated time as T2 is rolled into a 36:32 bike split time.
What would you do differently?:

Went pretty well.
  • 23m 16s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 29s  min/mile

Since running Moo a couple weeks ago I have done no running outside zone 2 so I didn't really know what to expect. I gave 'er as much as I could and held off most everybody.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster!
Post race
Warm down:

Nearly puked. I finished 2:30 faster than when I did this exact race in May so I'm pretty stoked about what IM training has done for me. Yahoo!

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Nice fall race. Low number of participants and a low key environment.

Great job Jeff.  It was a pretty nice day to be outside this morning despite the wind.  Way to go on overall victory.  Were you screaming "Ironman coming through!" on the bike?

Great job! Congratulations!

I did this race two years ago. Is the transition area still outside the pool on the grass, or did they find a better place for it?
