Had a great swim . Started wayyyy right from my fellow swimmers and swam straight and could feel the current take me and push me along side the docks and when the dock ended I swam straight towards the docks and had to fight the current alittle but once it got hold of me again I had an easy swim the docks. I enjoyed the swim alottttt

Warm down:

Had a coke and a bagel and walked around talking to friends

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing I did not put my full heart in it except the swim and just wanted to end my tri season with a none injury .

Event comments:

Have a timing mat when you get out of the water for swim time and add the long run to your T1 time. A swim time is how long you SWIM not how long you swim and get out and run to the first timing sensor

Great race! It's funny that you focused more on the swim and I focused more on the bike and run. Sorry I didn't meet any of you guys, I was just too late getting started.
