Comments:

My swim would have been much better, but I stopped in the middle to help a 9 year old girl who was panicking. She had started before me, and she was hyperventilating, and I couldn't just leave her. So, I waded next to her for a bit, getting her to float on her back, until she said that she was OK. I was worried to leave her, but I saw that the lifeguards on the kayaks were watching her pretty closely. She completed the swim and the rest of the race...pretty awesome for 9 years old!
What would you do differently?:

Nothing
Transition 1
  • 03m 45s
Comments:

It was at least .2 miles from the swim exit to transition, so that's where most of my time was spent. Otherwise transition went well.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...well, maybe try to run a bit faster between the river and transition.

Comments:

It was a pretty boring course, but also pretty flat. I hadn't been on my bike on the road since Austin in October of last year, so I was pretty happy with my performance. My butt was burning by the time I got back.
What would you do differently?:

Train on my bike.

Comments:

Pretty good transition

Comments:

I had a pretty good run. On one of the grueling uphills I notice my pace was over 10min/miles, so on the way in I was pushing almost 7 min/miles to make up for it.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing
Post race
Warm down:

Not much

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training recently.

Event comments:

Team Magic always puts on a great race!!! I stuck around for the awards ceremony, because I knew I was the 5th OA female, so I would place in my age group. It wasn't until they did the awards and my name was called as the 2nd OA masters female did I realize that I am now in the masters division. I'm still 39!!! Oy!
