Hemet, California
United States
50F / 10C
Total Time = 1h 04m 18s
Overall Rank = 174/720
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 200/68
  • 02m
  • 150 meters
  • 01m 20s / 100 meters

Since the swim was last, i'd never swam after biking. First thing I realized was my legs were heavier in the water. The pool was crazy, and lots of people walking the shallow ends. Hard to navigate around everyone but I did the 150 in 2:00 so I guess I swam okay
Transition 1
  • 01m 9s
  • 34m 43s
  • 12 miles
  • 20.74 mile/hr

Bike course was a slight grade headed out but quicker coming back to transition. There was a huge mix of bikes and people, and I was passing people thru my whole ride (made me realize how slow I am on the run)
Transition 2
  • 02m 8s

TRansition from biking to swim. There was about a 200 yard run from transition to the pool
  • 25m 16s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 07s  min/mile

I started off in the middle of the pack, and I should've moved to the front more. I ran pretty well, and each mile was a little faster. The last mile I must've run in under 8:00 and it actually felt ok
Oh ya and this was a PB for a 5K
Post race
Warm down:

Since the swim was last, I stood under one of the outdoor showers (which were warm and felt great!)

Event comments:

This was a fun race. Huge mix of competitors, from the hardcore triathletes to the first timers. I enjoyed myself

Awesome job, 1:20/100 meters. Smokin' !!! I was out there today watching and I have to agree, there was a mix of hardcore triathletes to the first timers, it was really nice to see a mix of people.

Dude, you're a freakin' dolphin! I swam like driftwood. Nice job. Good transitions times too. I need to work on those. Awesome day overall for sure. What a fun race.
