Pre-race routine:

Ran around like a crazy man making sure my 6 year old enjoyed and was safe during her KOS event!
Event warmup:

Short swim and light jog
Swim
  • 22m 19s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 59s / 100 meters
Comments:

Just a disaster, the water was great, I started great but swam way way off course for the 2nd straight time. Terrible sighting by me, foggy goggles didn't help... not a strong swimmer anyways (would have been 18 minutes on an average day). I didn't need my garmin to show me after I was all over the place, way way off course at times. At one point I looked to my left and realized the next wave was passing me, almost 75 meters away, I had swam way off course.
What would you do differently?:

practice open water swimming and sighting, swimming with my head up every 10 strokes.
Transition 1
  • 02m 55s
Comments:

Second time getting a wetsuit off went way better! Still need to do it faster but overall an improvement. Mounting was a bit of adventure due to the quick hill, sharp turn at the mount line and wet shoes - just ran an extra 10 feet up the little hill and jumped in.
What would you do differently?:

continue to work on getting out of my suit faster
Bike
  • 43m 30s
  • 20 kms
  • 27.45 km/hr
Comments:

Loved the ride, the rain didn't help but the course was familiar and great. I'm not the fastest rider but improving so happy.
What would you do differently?:

Keep working on improving my strength and learning better gear strategy.
Transition 2
  • 01m 55s
Comments:

Not sure why I took so long, long transition area, had my shoes off and runners on in no time.
Run
  • 28m
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 36s  min/km
Comments:

Loved the run. felt great, lots of crowd interaction on the course, i saw my family 4 times in 5 KM! Loads of water options, great finish through the park after coming down the hill.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster
Post race
Warm down:

Forgot to stretch, was too excited to complete my first Sprint, see my family, my club teammates, etc.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Swimming all over the lake instead of straight. I blame my mom for birthing me crooked.

Event comments:

An outstanding race. Any level - Olympic - tough course, great field. Sprint - average course, strong field but still some hacks/beginners like me, a great starter or competitive course to test. Give-it-a-Try - great course also for beginners, easy swim, moderate bike and easy run.
Plus great KOS events.

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

Any good race director will go over the triathlon swim course directions many times.

Experts agree, doing a “mock,” triathlon on the course you’re racing can aid you in your training; performance and most of all quell some nervous energy.
