Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5:50. PB and J for breakfast on the road. Hauled kids and friend into car. Got to penn yan at 7:15 and parked in the marked parking lot, which was about 1/2 mile from the transition area. Walked to transition area, past lots of cars parked much closer. Kids were whining. The registration area was chaos-nobody knew where to go. They had run out of goody bags by the time we got there, so we never got our postrace meal ticket. Was told 5 minutes ahead of time that transition was closing at the start of the oly (45 minutes before the start of the sprint) and was frantic.

Go faster-I didn't push myself

Since I ran a 5K race 3 weeks ago and was happy to break 10 minute miles, breaking it AFTER the swim and bike felt GREAT.

Maybe push myself a little more, but I was pretty beat by the end.

This will probably be a great race once they work out the kinks, but they were very frustrating.

After the first buoy I sighted the wrong one, and went about 150 m off course and had to correct, so I probably swam a 900 instead!
