Pre-race routine:

Got up at 4:45 but had a little trouble getting the rest of the family out of the bed! We grabbed a little breakfast at 5:30 and headed for the race site. We didn't leave the hotel until 5:50...I was freaking out! We pulled up to the race site at 6:15 and had a loooong way to go to the parking area! I was absolutely freaking out, now!
Event warmup:

No warm up...except the little 2/3 mile jog to the swim start.
  • 28m 50s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

I was a little stiff from not having a warm up. It took about 15 minutes to get loose. I felt really good in the last 300...too bad I had already realized I missed my goal time!
What would you do differently?:

Arrive earlier to allow for warm up.
Transition 1
  • 07m 19s

T1 included a 2/3 mile run from the swim finish to TA.
  • 1h 11m 58s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 20.72 mile/hr

I really need to continue to work on my bike. I felt O.K. until mile 16 when my back injury started shooting pain down my left leg.
Transition 2
  • 01m 7s

Pretty good transition
  • 51m
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 13s  min/mile

Pretty dang slow...even with a back injury I should be able to go faster.
What would you do differently?:

Not hurt my back the day before a race!
Post race
Warm down:

Sat in the cold water of the river!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Back injury.
