Pre-race routine:

4am wake up. Gatorade, fruit, and cereal on the drive up.
Event warmup:

I was in the second to last wave so sat around for an hour and did a 100M swim to warm up.
  • 38m 2s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 19s / 100 yards

Took over 5 minutes off my swim from last year, still not speedy but pretty good for me.
What would you do differently?:

Swim competitively when I was a kid.
Transition 1
  • 01m 55s
  • 1h 26m 15s
  • 26.1 miles
  • 18.16 mile/hr

Lost my front derailleur in the first mile but I was in the small ring so fortunately I could still climb. Got down to 4 mph on the worst of the climb but no walk of shame. I couldn't peddle at more than 24 mph without the large ring so I just had to coast until I slowed down. All in all pretty happy with this part.
Transition 2
  • 01m 19s

Left my shoes clipped in for the first time and it worked out pretty well.
  • 52m 14s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 25s  min/mile

Started to overheat about half way through the run but pretty happy otherwise. The ice on the run was a lifesaver, just kept putting it down my shirt.
What would you do differently?:

Just more always.
