Pre-race routine:

Got in, got T2 setup, and went to the beach. My wave was one of the last to go so I had to wait for 20-30 minutes after the 1st wave.
  • 10m 6s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 01s / 100 meters

Felt like there was more current that in the past, they may have had us out deeper.
Transition 1
  • 01m 52s

Pretty fast esp. considering I had to throw my gear bag to my family on my way out of T.
  • 34m 26s
  • 20 kms
  • 34.85 km/hr

21.6 mph my pb. Fun to race here.
Transition 2
  • 01m 7s

My legs were heavy coming off the bike.
  • 25m 2s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 01s  min/km

Very happy with this run considering how hard I went on the bike.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

N/A A great race. Put it all together and performed to the best of my (limited) abilities.

Event comments:

Love this course!
In the past they transported your gear bag from T1 to T2 and gave it to you after the race. They decided not to this year and did not tell anyone. Many folks found this out in T1 right before the start of the race. Also, they didn't have enough folks marking racers-I have never seen that before.
