Kelly Lake Triathlon
65F / 18C
Overcast
Total Time = 1h 38m 48s
Overall Rank = 26/105
Age Group = 40-99
Age Group Rank = 1/12
Pre-race routine:

Quick bagel and peanut butter and 5 hour energy drink.
Event warmup:

I was staying at my sisters lake home so I was actually able to just ride my bike over to transition. It was a couple of miles so it was a nice warm up.
Swim
  • 17m 31s
  • 800 meters
  • 02m 11s / 100 meters
Comments:

I was in the last wave (5) and was able to catch a few people in the two waves before me. That never happens so I was pretty excited. Swim time included getting out of the water on a ladder, walking the pier and the timing mat was at the transition. Didn't want to slip on wet slick bricks so I walked that all.
What would you do differently?:

Get control of my breathing.
Transition 1
  • 01m 39s
Comments:

The timing chip was the biggest I'd ever seen. I could not get my wetsuit over it. Very frustrating but I conquered.
What would you do differently?:

Keep my timing chip insinde the leg.
Bike
  • 49m 40s
  • 15.5 miles
  • 18.72 mile/hr
Comments:

Felt so great to pass tons of people. I encouraged others along the way. Had a bunch of water on the bike and a gel.
What would you do differently?:

Spin my legs faster.
Transition 2
  • 01m 5s
Comments:

Don't have the quick laces so I actually had to tie my shoes. Ran with my visor instead of putting it on in transition.
What would you do differently?:

Get some quick laces.
Run
  • 28m 55s
  • 3.4 miles
  • 08m 30s  min/mile
Comments:

Feet were numb off the bike but I made them move. I knew the run was a bit longer than a 5k and went out with all I could muster. When I had about a mile left I picked up the pace some more.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster
Post race
Warm down:

Had a water and walked around. I saw the plaques for OA female and male winners so asked if I should stick around for division winner. They said yet. I waited for my name and it was never called. Some glitch in the system gave the Rudy Project sunglasses for 40-99 winner to another woman. All was worked out and I was giving the winner status.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing. I'm very happy.

Event comments:

I couldn't give it a 5 because of the timing mix up but I will do it again if I am up there next year.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

The triathlon made a lot of sense as I could fit the training around early mornings and other times that wouldn't eat too much into my family time. Things never go completely to plan do they?

I found a sprint, the Lake Las Vegas Triathlon, that was happening four months down the road and signed myself up; much to the surprise of friends and family.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.
