Went up the wrong row about 1/2 way..lost a bit of time back tracking..had a rock in my shoe that was not there when I set up..stopped to remove it after leaving transition area.
What would you do differently?:

Will get some speed laces, maybe bike shoes with velcro since I ride with my mtn bike shoes. Wierd, I know.

Event comments:

Would like to see recovery type drinks..all they had was water. Pizza never sounds good to me after a race.
