Post race
Warm down:

Walked a bit after the chip came off. Didn't have Hammer Recoverite, so had a chocolate milk, which, as usual, made me sick at my stomach.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Navigating the OWS. Did my best on the bike and run.

Event comments:

I'll definitely do it again next year!
