Sunny
Total Time = 2h 08m 28s
Overall Rank = 198/278
Age Group = 55-59
Age Group Rank = 5/7
Pre-race routine:

Had breakfast at the hotel, the usual, coffee and oatmeal. Drove to the race site, parked the car and assembled my gear. Wonderful! Each contestant has a numbered spot for tri gear. I arranged everything in order to facilitate recovering them for each leg of the tri
Event warmup:

Walked around looking at the women. This time I actually went out for a light jog to warm up a little more just before the swim start.
Swim

Comments:

This was a nice swim. I did not have any kind of problem. My time, albeit slow, is about par for me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing!
Transition 1
  • 02m 4s
Bike
  • 1h 00m 55s
  • 30 kms
  • 29.55 km/hr
Comments:

I lost a bit of time trying to mount the bike. Tried and failed twice to clip into my pedals and start to ride. Started slowly because I had the bike in a too high gear. Then, my bib fell off!. I caught it but had to stop to pin it on!?! :( And to make matters even worse, my front gear shifter was not working properly!!!!!!!!!!
What would you do differently?:

1. Attach my shoes to the bike and learn to do a jump start
2. Bring the damned bike in to have the gears adjusted
3. NEVER FORGET my darned bib belt to the race!
Transition 2
  • 01m 33s
Comments:

Much faster transition than I thought I had done!
Run
  • 44m 56s
  • 7.2 kms
  • 06m 14s  min/km
Comments:

I got passed by so many people that I assumed that I was running very slowly. I did pick up my pace all along the course.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. I think that my run was great!
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around for awhile.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Problems with the bike and mounting the bike, exacerbated by the fact that my bib came off.

Event comments:

Best organized triathlon I've ever done. Each participant is assigned a numbered space for race gear and bike.

The K-Town Triathlon in Kingston is the best orgonized tri that I have ever done.  Although I did have a few problems on the bike, I was satisfied with this course and with my performance.
