The Great Atlantic Ocean Triathlon – Sunday September 13, 2009 – Sprint Distance

Well, it’s going to take a little time for me to get this right.

The Great Atlantic Ocean Triathlon http://www.jsmultisport.com/race_seaside_heights_091309.shtml

Dangerous riptides and 2 ft sand drifts at Seaside Park’s south end resulted in the following distance modification of The Great Atlantic: Swim .40 mile, bike 14.2 miles, run 3.1 mile.

What a day..

 I got to the site parked and setup without any issues. I was feeling ready and then i looked at the waves. The problem started when i realized that i did not take my GU before the swim and i did not go to the bathroom either, i had an 2 hours worth of liquid and no energy to burn. I had 2 slices toast for breakfast at 4am and the start was at 6:45am. I must have burned all my energy in the swim, which by the way sucked and i still did not go to the bathroom. The T1 area was in the parking lot area and it was a nice run from the beach. On the bike, I’m feeling sluggish so i say to my self you idiot you forgot your nutrition. i take our my GU and somehow i clip the gps and it falls off. It was windy but the GU did not kick to-wards the second lap. I rolled in to t2 and i knew that if i did not use the bathroom i would pee in my pants. Coming out of t2 i did not see one Port potty until mile 1.4 and then i felt great the run was slow no excuse for that. so the moral to this story is go to the bathroom before the swim and take your nutrition …  DO NOT OVER HIDRATE

 

My mom came out to support me awesome… love you mom.
