Pre-race routine:

Ate breakfast and headed to the race site. (This will not be a great RR, I'm writing it about 8 months after the fact).
  • 33m 37s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 35s / 100 yards

Good swim, felt I drafted well and had a good pace coming home.
What would you do differently?:

Not much
Transition 1
  • 01m 33s

Don't remember anything going wrong here.
  • 2h 54m 33s
  • 56 miles
  • 19.25 mile/hr

The course wasn't AS flat as advertised, but still very fast. I just didn't have enough bike fitness to give myself a shot at breaking 5 hours. I kept my power in range to make sure I would be able to put in a strong run.
Transition 2
  • 00m 42s

I feel like T2 is my specialty
  • 1h 37m 58s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 29s  min/mile

Wow, what a run! Put down a hard pace to start, stuck to my nutrition plan and held on. At times it was quite painful, but I thought I was in 4th in the AG and wanted to run my way onto the podium, so I battled the whole way. Finished with a massive kick to sneak under 1:38:00 (unknowingly, I just had to clip one last guy).
What would you do differently?:

A 13.1 PR in a HIM? Nothing
Post race
Warm down:

Sat in the lake, had a beer

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Bike fitness
