It was nice to be able to stay up for the most part. I really, really, REALLY need to spend more time on the bike. This was by far my weakest part of the race. Also, I never put my feet in the shoes, AT ALL!
What would you do differently?:

Train, train, TRAIN!

Comments:

Took forever to get my socks on, that was ridiculous.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe skip the socks if I'm doing a sprint.

I only dropped two spots overall on the run so I guess it was a lot better than I thought it was.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe work the fluids a little bit more.
Post race
Warm down:

Lots of walking around.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably a lack of training and sleep during the week prior to the race.

Event comments:

I love doing triathlons here; this is a great facility and a great group of people.
