Pre-race routine:

Stayed at Rohnert park so woke up for the 40 min drive to Johnsons beach. Drank a bottle of electrolyte caffiene camelbak tab things which woke me up and got me ready for the swim. I ate a light breakfast but since my wave didnt start until 8:36 i could have a huge breakfast.
Event warmup:

Stretched out a sore shoulder and swam for about 15 mins before the my wave.
  • 51m 57s
  • 2112 yards
  • 02m 28s / 100 yards

Swim was fun but having to stand up every couple 100 meters got annoying.
What would you do differently?:

I am trashing the wetsuit!
Transition 1

Good transition however the transition area was being broken down already and people were in the way.
  • 4h 01m 22s
  • 56 miles
  • 13.94 mile/hr

This was my worse bike yet.
What would you do differently?:

I need to get the time in the saddle.
Transition 2
  • 07m

At this point I was just taking my time
What would you do differently?:

Eat a burger at the BBQ before I go on the run.

  • 13.1 miles
  • 14m 40s  min/mile

First step into the run and my ankle alomst gave out on me. I was in pain pretty much for the entire duration of the run. Not sure what casued it so may a little pre ride stretching.
