Pre-race routine:

Power bar, banana, nuun sports drink
Event warmup:

had a gu just before the swim. Short swim to starting line
  • 18m 35s
  • 1000 meters
  • 01m 52s / 100 meters

swim went well. did not start out too fast. Was able to get on the feet of someone at the turn and follow him most of the way back.
What would you do differently?:

maybe a little more push at the start
Transition 1
  • 02m 14s

went well. I had put powder in my socks and shoes before so my feet slipped in quickly
  • 53m 40s
  • 18 miles
  • 20.12 mile/hr

like the course, Bombing down the hills is fun. 4 laps and gained about 10 seconds per lap. Only snafu was dropping my water bottle when going to drink on the hill in lap 3.
Transition 2
  • 01m 14s
  • 35m 37s
  • 4.5 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

legs were little stiff at start and got started a little slower than I wanted. Was passed by 1st age grouper about 3/4 mile in. Second mile was downhill and able to cruise at faster pace. Then felt like just slogging through the next couple of miles
What would you do differently?:

push pace more

Event comments:

Warm race with a number of hills. Went well for the most part but the 4 laps wore on the legs and made the run not as quick. Well organized and I appreciated the time trial start instead of a wave start for the swim. Run is hot and hilly which is normal for this course.
