Pre-race routine:

Light breakfast throughout the morning. Had to string it out a little due to a late wave start (wave 11) over an hour after transition closed.
Event warmup:

1 light swim lap
  • 33m 21s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 02s / 100 yards

Really took it easy on the swim which paid dividens later in the race. Counted strokes kept me focused and on track.
What would you do differently?:

I could certainly go stronger and get into a draft but this always raises my anxiety. I prefer to swim alone.
Transition 1
  • 02m 18s

First year sockless and shoes mounted saved 1 min over last years T1. Did have a little trouble jumping on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Take my time mounting. I went for my shoes too quickly, missed and had them get hung up a little.
  • 1h 20m 45s
  • 26.1 miles
  • 19.39 mile/hr

A tough course but one of my favorites. Leap frog with another participant kept things fun and me pushing the pace.

George if you're reading this, Thx!
Transition 2
  • 01m 57s

Sockless = speed. I recommend it for anyone thinking about giving it a go.
  • 50m 14s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 05s  min/mile

Decided to carry my own drink. This worked great as I could hydrate when I wanted to not just at the stations. Plus time saved not having to slow down at the stations.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around stretch. Muscle Milk my favorite revovery drink.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Tentative in the swim but don't know that I would change that as I felt great the rest of the race.

Event comments:

Not sure if IM read the comments on the sprint from earlier this year, but they stepped up and put on a race that I would expect from them.
