Improved my swim over Eagleman. I think I am somehow a better swim without a wetsuit (this puzzles me!!). Swam on course for the most part. Could not really get on anyone's feet. I did try to limit my breathing - 4 strokes then 2, repeat. I think this helped.
Did ok. Should have practiced taking my speedsuit off.
Never felt like I got into a groove. I did not go a good job on the hills.
I should have being paying more attention - the dismount line kind of snuck up on me and I was taking my feet out of my shoes very close to the line.
Decent run for me. I caught a teammate and brought him along with me which was fun.
I really liked the convenience of this race and it is well run. However, the bike course is just so crowded. I really liked the swim though. The run course was fine.

Up at 4 AM. Showered, ate quickly and met a friend at 4:35 to ride over to transition. Wish I had worn something over my kit!! I was a bit chilly. Happy to have plenty of time and not rush.
Took an early bus to swim start. Had plenty of time and relaxed with fellow teammates. Did a very short jog as no swim warmups were allowed.
