Current must have died down significantly by the time my wave went off (almost two hours after the pros). I can swim 1:30/100 yds. pretty much all day in open water events, but the NYC syndicate clocked me at 1:36 pace. All that free speed they advertised to entrants passed me by.

Jellyfish in the Hudson...who knew? Multiple stings incurred, including face and lips.

Never thought I'd live long enough to crack the 20 mph frontier in an Oly. This was a major breakthrough for me on a cool course which is well suited to my ability.

Comments:

A friend who runs in Central Park fairly regularly told me there were some hills after mile three. Didn't realize how much those would take out of me. Ninety degrees in the sit-tay wasn't helping things either. Poor run performance overall, but nothing will take the shine off of my 20 mph bike ride!
What would you do differently?:

Mile 1 was a debacle. Who takes off at 7:45 and then ends up walking later? Me, that's who.

Great job (especially on the bike).  I watched the race over the weekend on TV and it looks like a fun event.
