Event warmup:

Ride bike to T1 :)
  • 31m 23s
  • 820 yards
  • 03m 50s / 100 yards

It was rough, but I made it out! Not bad for a first timer who couldn't really swim 3 months ago!
What would you do differently?:

Practice, practice, practice! Probably weight lifting also to get stamina up in arms and shoulders.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Unsure on time, swim and T1 time was combined
What would you do differently?:

take less time to do everything
  • 48m 48s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 15.28 mile/hr

Stopped at turn around to gulp water and eat a snack, so that slowed me down obviously.
What would you do differently?:

Need to get aero bars and the water bottle that goes in between to help with proper hydration and help speed up aerodynamically
Transition 2
  • 00m 32s

transition was good and quick
What would you do differently?:

Remember to grab my iphone for motivational music!
  • 30m 33s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 51s  min/mile

At turn around, took a water and splashed it on my face and drank a gatorade and was good to go after that. Amazing.
What would you do differently?:

Remember to grab my iphone for music
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and snacked on chocolate milk and gatorade and bagel

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not hydrating efficiently during bike ride, wetsuit hindered movement just a bit
