The event consisted of a 400 yard pool swim, 12 mile out and back bike, and a 2 mile run. I finished in 1:17:28 placing 12th in my age group.
I am not a fast swimmer by any stretch of the imagination placing 14th in the swim. I was happy to place 3rd in T1. The bike was my strongest discipline. I averaged 25 mph out and hit 40 mph occasionally and heard one of the other competitors exclaim "wow" as I flew by them. I was thinking I got this in the bag until the turn around and realized there was a tail wind on the way out. The return trip was quite a bit slower due to the headwind averaging 16.8 for the course. Slower than I had hoped for as I usually average 19 - 20.
If I had prepared a little more and done a few more bricks, my run time would have been better possible placing me in the top 10.
I am fine with the results as this was my first Tri of the season and it only served to emphasize the area's I need to work on.
