lousy swim pace wise. Went straight to bouy on way out; wandered some on way back. Got caught in rip last 75 yds or so. Faster than last year.

stay with the pack.

Stay with the original plan and leave shoes clipped in.

Took it easy in the corners due to slippery roads. Had to remove Oakleys; got wet in the marine layer. Glasses fell out of my pocket upon dismount; cost a couple of extra seconds. Passed a lot of athletes in my age group.
What would you do differently?:

Should not have worn glasses at all; what was I thinking?

right shoe folded under, spent an extra second or three getting it on.
What would you do differently?:

time to body glide the shoes!

Event comments:

Good Lord, I'm a lousy swimmer! Still almost 4 minutes faster than last year. Swim, T1, T2, ans bike all faster than last year. Run was a tad slower. Should not have been.
