I got stuck behind a raft on first turn and couldn't get around. I was so nervous and had little sleep. These conditions mixed with my medication cause severe nausea half way through the swim course. Tougher it out.
What would you do differently?:

I will definitely pay attention to what is around me and make sure im ahead of any rafts before i get to buoys. Sleep and skip meds before a race.
Transition 1
  • 03m 55s

Was just trying to keep my breakfast down.
What would you do differently?:

RUN faster to my transition post!
  • 30m 25s
  • 7 miles
  • 13.81 mile/hr

Couldn't keep track of my speed because my computer sensor fell off and way dangling on my axle the whole ride. Didn't think I was doing to bad as I was passing a lot people. Thought I was making up time lost in the swim. See time after race proved otherwise but that what I get for not training sufficiently on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Check equipment better before race! Train harder.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 30m 39s
  • 2 miles
  • 15m 20s  min/mile

Damn it's was hard getting off that bike and running. I was so slow. Good news, I started to feel better half way through the run and was able to drink some water without feel of vomiting. I think I could half walked faster than I was running, then I tried that and I was wrong. I walked much slower then my trot. I didn't think that was possible. Finished the race with my grandson, Lucas, running ahead of me showing me how to cross the finish line.
What would you do differently?:

Just train more AND do more brick training. Oh wait, that means I would of had to ridden my bike. Ah, I think I see the problem.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of adequate training and my weight.

Event comments:

Had a blast. I will do it again. I now have a time to beat. Next year I want to slaughter this years time. Next year, I run for me! The whole course, I will run, run, RUN!

If you have ever felt confused by the plethora of commercial sports fuels, you are not alone. Runners, cyclists, and other athletes inevitably ask me, "What’s the best energy bar? gel? sports drink?"
