What limited your ability to perform faster:

I recorded my fastest bike to date, had a good swim, and a run I can live with. Nothing really limited me, hopefully it was a good tune-up for Rec-Plex in June.

Event comments:

This tri was in a smaller town and we figured it would be a good beginner tri for my wife to get started. And while it delivered a small field, the expected hybrids and mountain bikes never showed, had a few Cervelos, Quintana Roos', Treks....Small field, yet a pretty decent group for my AG. I don't expect to make a habit out of winning my AG but I'll take it!
This race has potential. They need some guidance but I think they could grow this into a decent event, nice pool, nice facilities, I'll likely go back next year.
