Pre-race routine:

Got up early, had breakfast and headed down to the race site.
Event warmup:

After setting up transition headed to hang out with some friends while everyone waited for LA to show up. Once the start neared got suited up and jogged down to the swim start.
  • 41m 55s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 59s / 100 yards

One of the roughest but most fun swims I've ever done. The waves were huge and at the end of the first lap I was almost scared to go back out.
Transition 1
  • 01m 56s
  • 2h 47m 20s
  • 56 miles
  • 20.08 mile/hr

The wind didn't pick up until my last lap. Overall this bike course is super fast and flat.
What would you do differently?:

Slow down. Even though the bike felt good I think I was going too fast headed into the run.
Transition 2
  • 02m 26s
  • 2h 38m 9s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 12m 04s  min/mile
What would you do differently?:

Wear socks, train in more sand.
