Comments:

Awesome swim (although I think it was a little short). The sun was right in my eyes for the up to the first turn, which made sighting difficult. I was able to draft a lot more than usual. I started right in front, which helped with catching the feet.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing.

Awesome bike. I did not hold back and passed a lot of women. I only got passed by two people, one was a really fast woman in the 40-45 AG, which started after me, and the other was a woman in my AG that I had played leap frog with the whole bike leg. This is my fastest leg split by avg. mps ever.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing!!

Very smooth. Good transition.

Comments:

Ughhh...this run wsa hard. I really wanted to finish it under 25 min., but either because of the hard bike or Musselman HIM last week, or both I just didn't have it in me. Pushed as hard as I could.
What would you do differently?:

Race rested.
Post race
Warm down:

Hung out with the girls from the YMCA, took pics, cheered everyone on.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The race last weekend.

Event comments:

This was such a fun race. Very different vibe to race with just women, and I loved it. Everyone was so encouraging. I will definitely do this race again next year.

I am also totally excited that I came in 24th OA!! 8 in my AG, but out of 88 and a tough ag to boot. Very fun.
