Pre-race routine:

Kind of hectic, due to the logistics (2 TA's split about 1 mile apart - with shuttles to get between them).
Event warmup:

Did a warm-up swim, just to get used to the water temp.
  • 11m 20s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 16s / 100 meters

I got a little jostled about 100yds in, but recovered OK.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe lie up closer to the front next time.
Transition 1

Nothing to note, here.
What would you do differently?:

I'm going to start trying to not use socks.
  • 37m 52s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 20.76 mile/hr

Thought I was faster on the bike. Pushed it pretty hard.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. I rode as hard as I thought I could.
Transition 2
  • 00m 40s

No big deal here. I think I had the 4th fastest T2.
What would you do differently?:

  • 23m 42s

Probably a 150yds (after exiting the water) to get to the timing mats where swim time stopped. Took a little time to get out of the wetsuit (not very practiced at this). It is what it is.
