Pre-race routine:

No real routine, just set my stuff out.
Event warmup:

Few laps in the roped off swimming area.
  • 07m 10s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 38s / 100 yards

Grow some balls and move to the front of the start.
What would you do differently?:

Move close to the front at the start. Back off / relax
Transition 1
  • 00m 57s

Generally struggled in T1, nothing specific. Bike conditioning is definitely lower compared to last year.
What would you do differently?:

keep heart rate lower. Be more familiar with the course.
  • 42m 5s
  • 14.34 miles

Hear rate was extremely high, couldn't get it down. Rode 3/4 mph slower than last year.
Transition 2

Had trouble with my socks. Lots of rocks at the run in.
What would you do differently?:

  • 32m 17s

OK considering training. Happy with 32 second pace drop from last year.

Start out a little slower.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked around.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

training and abandoning my race plan.

Event comments:

Fun, small race. Great if you are a beginner or as the first race of the season. I will return every year.
