Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4:45, had a bowl of cereal with blueberries and juice. Took my usual shower to wake up, chill...then headed to Keller at 5:45.
Event warmup:

Got to the parking lot and it was empty of people and full of cars. Hopped on my bike and started riding over and noticed that the T area was full? I got there at 6:40...10 minutes after the T area opened....or so I thought. Forgot to set my clock ahead so I was late. They hurried me in and gave me like 2 minutes to set up my T area so my wheels were off the whole day.
  • 06m 10s
  • 300 meters
  • 02m 04s / 100 meters

Felt really good on the swim but I forgot to start my watch and noticed it almost all the way down the first lap...stupid fucker. Guessed at my time but felt strong and smooth.
What would you do differently?:

Not be wheels off and forget to start my watch.
