Thought my time would be faster cuz I was passing people from earlier waves like crazy. Surf got a little rougher second half. Sighting wasn't great but not bad.
Long run from water to T area. Decided to take my suit off at waters edge so I'd have the water to lube my legs. If I ran the 200 yds+ to the T area all the water would have dried up and the suit would have been harder to take off....sounds good anyway
I didn't feel like I pushed too hard but I may have cooked it a little too much and paid for it on the run??? But I feel like I rode the correct pace. Temps rose fast
Pretty disappointed with this run. Couldn't maintain sub-7 miles in that frickin' heat. Kept stuffing ice down my tri top to try to cool off. I guess I'm glad I was able to keep the focus up and not totally blow up the last 5 miles. Saw a lot of people on a death march.
Took the Clearwater slot. Mixed feelings about going to the draft-fest but I want to experience the 70.3 World Championships at least once (ate the entry fee when I qualified for Clearwater at Steelhead 70.3 in 2008).

Typing this as I'm stuck in the Atlanta Airport at 2:35 a.m. Gawked at Craig Alexander and the other pros while they got their transition areas ready. Surprised how many top pros were here. Trixie came over to say hello. Intorduce myself to RaytownPete. Chatted a bit with my tri club buddy John who had a much earlier wave than me. Walked to the swim start with BT'ers Tammy (tripletmom01) and TracyV
