Total Time = 35m 46s
Overall Rank = 4/
Age Group = 30-39
Age Group Rank = 1/
Pre-race routine:

Met with Dck, Shells, and NL, got registered and bodymarked. Saw Wurkit, talked a little.
Event warmup:

Talk to my lane mate - very annoying, self-adoring Borat (courtesy of BITM)-like guy. He was so in love with himself, oh my!
  • 7h 45m
  • 480 meters
  • 1h 36m 52s / 100 meters

I think i swan pretty well today, i do think i could go faster by then I would not be able to run because of the crazy HR.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m

  • 27m 6s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 43s  min/mile

No idea of time again, i'm guessing here. BITM caught up me at the last half mile, we ran together for a while. It is very difficult to run right after the swim with HR already very high. I was hurting on the hills! I was really happy to be out of the woods and do my last lap around the soccer fields. It was great to see my friends at the finish!!!!
What would you do differently?:

practice more hills in my runs
Post race
Warm down:

Ate hot dogs, watched Shelly and DCK race.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not liking running hills

Event comments:

It was great to spend another day with friends, in addition this year I was 8 minutes faster than last year!!!!

Fun time today!

" 07:45:00 | 480.06 meters | 1h 36m 52s / 100meters "

I realize that you said you have no clue about your swim time, but I'm thinking it was faster than what you put. 

Thanks for getting us all to do the race!!!
