Pre-race routine:

Arrived early, ate clif bar and drank propel. Should have used restroom, but lines were pretty long
Event warmup:

light stretching
  • 15m 1s
  • 1.5 miles
  • 10m 01s  min/mile

Started off a little fast, but settled into pace quickly
Transition 1
  • 01m 40s

Nice smooth transition. I would consider running with gloves or cycling without gloves as this cost some time.
  • 40m 12s
  • 9.3 miles
  • 13.88 mile/hr

It was nice to race with the power meter. I would like to start training faster.
Transition 2
  • 01m 48s

Hamstrings were a little tight following bike. I should have spun a higher gear and stretched a little bit.
  • 37m 19s
  • 3.2 miles
  • 11m 40s  min/mile

Really hot and tired.
What would you do differently?:

I should have drank more at the water stations and poured water on head to keep cool
