Relaxed, ate a mix of protien fat and carbs.

The swim was not a triangle. It went out strait then turned right then turned around. This would have been better if they just made a triangle.
What would you do differently?:

Sight on the turnaround buoys and not the buoys along the route.

take it a little slower on the hills on the way out.

sweep the transition area.

Could not breathe. Felt like I had congestion in my chest. I was breathing hard while walking.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

fulid in my lungs.

Event comments:

I had problem breathing. When I crossed the finishers’ line I was helped out of the finishers shoot. The med people were too busy looking at the women coming out of the slip and slide. So once I was feeling well enough to walk I got up and left. This is defiantly not a WTC event.
