So my official time was finally posted on Monday and here are my thoughts.
400m Swim (aka my time in the pool) - 12:42 Median Time:8:50
Transition 1 - 3:48 Median Time:1:39
13 mi Bike - 54:34 Median Time:44:33
Transition 2 - 2:23 Median Time:1:10
5K Run - 42:27 Median Time:27:48
Overall - 1:55:56 Median Time:1:24:22
Well - before the race I had hoped to finish under 1:45:00 overall - but after seeing how hot and tired I was on the run I wasn't sure I was going to make it in under 2:00:00 - so I was excited to see my time come in at 1:55:56 when it was posted.
Overall among men I placed #117 out of #126 who finished the triathlon, which isn't great but I'm not surprised. Looking at the 5K run times and the biking - in general the athletes in this race were of a higher caliber than Morgans Triathlon. I think it is because the barrier to entry of the swim means only the more serious triathletes participate. Also the percentage of TT or Triathlon bikes was very high - so you know they were serious.
The Good News
The good news is despite my "poor" performance in this triathlon - I am in line for a trophy as the 1st place winner in the Elite Male classification. I was excited to see my time post and they hadn't disqualified me from the Elite Division. In fact they have updated some other times since then bumping me back to #117 instead of #115 - but I am still listed as the reigning Elite Male Champion! I'll post again when the trophy arrives!
