Pre-race routine:

Waited around for a long time in the rain. Everything was absolutely soaked. i started to set up a transition area, but wound up putting everything back in my bag because of the rain.
Event warmup:

Walking back and forth to shelter....
  • 14m 37s
  • 547 yards
  • 02m 40s / 100 yards

I HATE open water swimming. I cannot swim in a straight line to save my life and my form goes completely out the window.
What would you do differently?:

Learn to navigate.
Transition 1
  • 01m 51s

My transitions are definitely getting better.
What would you do differently?:

Set up the transition area, even if it is raining.
  • 35m 47s
  • 10 miles

I really didn't go all out on the bike. The road was wet and I wanted to be careful as I have an HIM in 3 weeks.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 02m 12s

This transition was slow. All of my stuff was still in my bag and I had to dig.
What would you do differently?:

See prior transition comment.
  • 26m 19s
  • 3 miles
