Pre-race routine:

Checked my bike after last night's tire fiasco. All was well. There was a 2 hr wait for our race to begin because there were so many events. Just hung out, watched the other races start, stayed hydrated and ran a bit
  • 10m 38s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 08s / 100 meters

Swim was good except the try a tri was right before us and there was a LOGJAM of back floaters and strugglers to deal with right at the end. If they weren't right in the direct line to the end instead of off to the side all would have been fine. I had to STOP and was not happy
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 42m 20s
  • 20 kms
  • 28.35 km/hr

Again, the slowies were blocking making life difficult. Or passing and then slowing down so I was drafting (always men not wanting to be chicked I guess). I got mad at one who contstantly did it. Either pass me and go faster or cut it out
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 25m 45s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 09s  min/km

I could have run faster than that I think. It was kind of hard to get around people in the had to run off onto the grass which is annoying after a while
