Pre-race routine:

My second Tri ever and my first HIM. Didn't really know what to do with myself, ate a sandwich and got into my wetsuit.
Swim
  • 1h 06m 11s
  • 2112 yards
  • 03m 08s / 100 yards
Comments:

Horrible swim. Only my second time doing an OWS. Wetsuit was tight making it hard to breath. Ended up backstroking the majority of the distance. Made the swim cut off with four minutes to spare!
What would you do differently?:

Much more open water swimming before the next event.
Transition 1
  • 04m 16s
Comments:

T1 wasn't bad, was mostly empty by the time I got there. Long run to the bike start line.
Bike
  • 3h 14m 4s
  • 56 miles
  • 17.31 mile/hr
Comments:

Felt great on the ride, minus the rain I might have had an 18mph average. No complaints on nutrition or hydration during the bike, felt strong to the finish.
Transition 2
  • 04m 54s
Run
  • 2h 32m
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 36s  min/mile
Comments:

Felt good for the first lap. Started hurting on the second lap. Did quite a bit of walking on the second lap, stomach felt very full, head started getting light on the last two miles or so. Overall not bad for the running shape I was in and never running that distance in training.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training. Not bad for a first HIM.

Event comments:

Awesome first HIM, will most likely run this race again.
