What would you do differently?:

taken more salt on the bike.
Transition 2
  • 02m 5s

I did not get my GU in my pocket right and fell out somewhere
  • 1h 59m 23s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 07s  min/mile

major dehidration issues from bike running on pace for about first 3 miles then started to feel light headed and cold so had to walk/run through aid stations at mile 9 I finally felt like i could push it again and ran a ok pace the remainder of race.
What would you do differently?:

First take more solt with me I only took 3 enduralites in t2, Second make sure i have my Roctane with me. Probably should have done more long bike runs in training.
