Pre-race routine:

Woke up early and drove to race site with Kristen. Picked up packet and set up transition.
Event warmup:

Waded a bit in water. It was too shallow for swimming.
  • 30m 28s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 02s / 100 meters

The first and last 100 meters or so were too shallow to swim and so required wading, which is much slower than swimming. Overall, this was a good swim.
Transition 1
  • 03m 9s

There is a long run from the beach to transition, so this was not a bad T1 time, although it seemed long.
  • 1h 10m 16s
  • 24 miles
  • 20.49 mile/hr

I'm still not good at U-turns. I pushed the bike a bit to see how I could do. I am happy with the time, but my rank is not great.
What would you do differently?:

Work on U-turns.
Transition 2
  • 01m 5s
  • 51m 57s
  • 10 kms
  • 05m 12s  min/km

I was stung by a bee about 1 mile into the run. I don't really understand my problem with running now. This used to be my strength, but I need to improve my speed.
What would you do differently?:

Keep training more.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

The race was good except for my run.

Event comments:

VTS-MTS puts on a well run event. This is a fast course where a PR is available
