Had an anxiety attack in the water. Ended up doing every stroke just to finish. Glad when I made it to land.

Absolutely beautiful. At this point I was the last participant, and the car following me kept trying to get me to quit (which I did not appreciate).
What would you do differently?:

Relax going down the hills.

It started to rain during this part, which felt amazing. They were breaking down the course as I passed, which added even more pressure.

Warm down:

Poured water over my head, and did a few forward bends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Poor training

Event comments:

This was my first triathlon. I was told that I picked a big one for my first, but I would not do it any other way. The volunteers were amazing. I think that I only finished because of them. Though I do not know why my chip did not record all of my splits.
