My first swim in a triathlon ( my 3rd ever tri) that was in the ocean. Felt very weird. Really choppy surf, with some wind gusts. I stuck to back stroke and really made good time compared to the rest of the pask. I saw some either switch from freestyle to back stroke taking my lead.
The transition area was in a sandy parking lot. The sand down there is like talcum (sp) powder. It was everywhere!! Had to take extra 30 secs to brush off the sand before I could get in my shoes. If I didn't it was going to be like sandpaper in there.
My best t2 to date.
What would you do differently?:
Suck it up more and push myself at the first and last mile. Rest on mile 2.

Got up at 4am. Stretched, ate some peanut butter and a bannana. Went for a brisk walk then a light 1 mile jog. I live 90 miles north of Wildwood NJ. Had to drive down by myself. For some reason family didn't see the need to get up at 5am.
Stretch, walk, 1 mile light run. Once in Wildwood I got on the bike to warm up on that after my 90 min drive.
