Pre-race routine:

Woke up about 6am and drove down with my Daughter who actually got up and went, cereal bagel and peanut butter started drinking water. Really watched hydration after near death experience 2 weeks ago:)

  • 750 meters
  • 02m 06s / 100 meters

That running start is just brutal. I was being beaten to death and actually had my first I am going to die freak out since this race last year. I quickly reminded my self to quit whining and just get in rhythm.Did good after that but I know the flip out cost me time because I really felt good in the water after that and was passing alot of same colored hats.
What would you do differently?:

Do not freak out
