hard ride due to wind and hills, used aerobars more than normal which helped, went slow up over the bridges, same bike course 3 minutes faster in May with less wind and heat

8th in transition time, helped by where my bike rack was

somewhat of a bonk due to the heat, ran slowly plodding, had to actually stop at the last 4 water stations and walk to try and cool down, ran same course in 52:50 in May, this was my toughest run in a race
What would you do differently?:

more long runs in the heat for training
Post race
Warm down:

dumped cold water on my head, stood under fountains to try and cool down due to over-heating

What limited your ability to perform faster:

heat, OK until the run, then didn't have enough stamina to keep up a pace, glad to get through the race

Event comments:

they had plenty of drink stations at least, Key Biscayne sometimes doesn't have enough drink stations
