I beat 32 in ag.
First six miles were great and did great job of holding back on the reigns. Didn't get excited except when I saw my family. Kept it at practiced pace. Mile 8-10 came and all the wheels came off. Started walking everywhere. Couldn't hardly make it from aid station to the next. Chris gave me some motivation to hurry up right at mile 11.
What would you do differently?:

Eat more on bike.

Post race
Warm down:

Ha, sat under tent for 30 minutes and tried to collect myself from going to medical tent.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nutrition, practicing more distance, life vs tri life

Event comments:

56 miles of biking on those roads. . . Not sure Ill EVER do that again, and my bike isn't the most expensive out there.
