This was my best swim so far at this distance. Slowly but surely my time is coming down and eventually i'll crack the 30 min mark.
What would you do differently?:

I did a really poor job finding feet. Drafting would've been nice.
Transition 1
  • 02m 18s

I picked bad wetsuit peelers. I would have been better off doing it myself.

  • 56 miles
  • 24.59 mile/hr

I crushed the bike. My legs felt great today.
Transition 2
  • 01m 11s
  • 1h 27m 36s
  • 13.1 miles

This was a solid run on a pretty tough run course. I was very pleased with my pace. I even split both loops.

Event comments:

This is the third time I've done this event and it was by far the best it has been run. Things were efficient and smooth all weekend. They even ordered perfect weather for us this year. Great job to everyone involved and thanks to all the volunteers.
