I felt like I really struggled with the swim. Kept running into people. Couldn't see anything in the water, which freaked me out.
What would you do differently?:

Try swimming in the location prior - practice better
Transition 1
  • 03m 6s

I felt like I did the transition really well. I would like to run from the swim to my bike and run with my bike.
What would you do differently?:

I would like to train doing a "mini" triathlon before the next one.

What would you do differently?:

I didn't run with my bike, legs were pretty burned. I had a really hard time getting into the run.
What would you do differently?:

Need to practice transitions

Run was really rough - I never got into a comfortable rhythm or pace

Post race
Event comments:

The post race activities were supposedly plentiful, but I didn't get to enjoy any of them because of my finishing time (all packed up by the time I was done). I was disappointed because I got in before the cut off, and feel like I should have had an opportunity to join the activities.
