  • 15m 23s
  • 792 yards
  • 01m 56s / 100 yards

I hated the swim course! It is shallow. People walked/ran to the first bouy. Swam a little then walked/ran back in. I tried to swim most of it. I'm sure I would have placed better if more people actually swam the swim course.
What would you do differently?:

Go out a head of the walkers!
Transition 1

Felt slow in T1
What would you do differently?:

Loose the socks

The bike is my strength. Took me a while to get going.
What would you do differently?:

Get a tri bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 16s

Went down the wrong row for T2. Just hopped over.
What would you do differently?:

Check landmarks coming in for T2 not just T1. (dummy)
  • 29m 57s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 40s  min/mile

Pushed it. Achilles was sore, but this was the last one of the season. Finished strong. Happy with that.
What would you do differently?:

Loose some weight, get new shoes and get a healthy achilles.
