10 hours of sleep! I saw Dana, ate at Robertos, went to the room, and had the best sleep ever.
It was otherwise a standard pre-race routine.

This was my best O'side swim, and I nailed a few things, like buoys.
This was the second rolling start at O'side, and I saw last year that people way over optimistically seed themselves. At the corral you could see people having second thoughts, and I found myself standing next to the vol with the 35 sign. I finished at 37, and it looks like not one guy passed me. A few women did - yes, guys think they're a lot better than they are ;
) The Strava flyby shows that I passed about 1/3 of the field after the turn. The wall of people wasn't nearly as bad as last year, but I still could have started a lot sooner.
It was an advantage to know the course since there was blinding sun back into the harbor.
Yes, it also sucked that WTC cancelled the surf start.

Despite being a lot slower this year, I ran the whole way, and didn't walk any hills like I did last year.
It was fun to have the tri club tents where we passed them a few times.
Here are the
As always, the organizers and vols are terrific. The weather was magical, cool and sunny on the bike, slight overcast on the run.
I would have loved a beach start. Maybe next year.
