Post race
Warm down:

Walked a bit and got a leg massage. It was awesome.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Being fat.

Event comments:

This race will challenge you on the bike for sure. There are a few hills that some people had to walk. As for the run portion, there are a couple of minor hills but very flat and by the ocean for most of the course, very pretty.
