Pre-race routine:

No real routine for this short course. Drank 1 cup of Coffee and had some water. Set up transition and then took some picture with friends that were particpating in their first tri.

Got in the water and swam a little to warm up.
  • 10m 27s
  • 400 yards
  • 02m 37s / 100 yards

Waited til toward the end to start so i could encourage some friends who were fretting the swim. Got held up by slow swimmers toward the end. I actually swam straight today. Good breathing

Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I need to eat before the race, worry less about friends performance. need to run, run, and run some more.

Nice race Stephen! You did great! I didn't have as much success as you on 'swimming straight'. Still working on that aspect, ha!! Again, thanks for commenting on my race report. Small world that we were both there.
