West Palm Beach, Florida
90F / 32C
Total Time = 1h 35m
Overall Rank = 149/234
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 15/18
Pre-race routine:

Ate a banana then drove 30 minutes to the race site.
Event warmup:

Swam about 5-10 minutes to loosen up and walked around a bit.
  • 14m 50s
  • 400 meters
  • 03m 43s / 100 meters

Tough swim! Only my second OWS and it showed. According to Garmin I swam about 550 meters due to my zig zagging.
What would you do differently?:

Swim slower to start out. I get too anxious and nervous about coming in last that I start out too fast and my breathing is bad.
Transition 1
  • 02m 58s

A LOT better transition than my last race although I did forget to put on my race number belt.
  • 43m 56s
  • 10 miles
  • 13.72 mile/hr

I actually felt good doing this ride, but my time didn't show it. The bridge took a lot out of me going up it. I tried to concentrate on keeping my cadence up, but not sure how I did on that.
What would you do differently?:

Train more obviously.
Transition 2
  • 01m 6s

Helmet off, hat on.
  • 32m 8s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 29s  min/mile

Was pretty hot out, but nice and flat run. I was tired, but tried to keep up as best as I could.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.....

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"

All you have to do is say you’re a triathlete and you intimidate the whole world. No matter how much you bench press or what you lift or how many squats you can do.
