Pre-race routine:

Ate a bar drank some coffee. Reached down and picked up a handful of wet sand and rubbed it into my palms and breathed in the aroma of the earth whispering "strength and honor"
Event warmup:

Jumped in line at the Porto potty. Met Andrew "the Claaaw" and what a really nice guy. Hung out for a bit talking and what not and eventually walked down the beach a half mile to the start.

Fun swim with a heavy current and light chop. It was tough to navigate as I couldn't se the next buoy so I followed the pack.

Holy wind coming back. I was pretty POed at the wind. My wife said I looked angry when I got off the bike and I was.

Felt pretty good on this run. Had enough in the tank to push a little harder. I finished real strong but I failed to hear Aileen screaming at me to grab Sebastian and cross the finish line! I really wanted to that as it was Sebastian's first race. Not that he would ever remember it but I still wanted carry him.
