Total Time = 1h 33m 39s
Overall Rank = 200/316
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 82/165
Event warmup:

I did not warm up, other than struggling to get my wetsuit on and walking around.
  • 20m 5s
  • 750 yards
  • 02m 41s / 100 yards

I am still a dreadfully slow swimmer, but I am relaxed and confident now. I don't panic, and I enjoy myself. I fought it out with a girl at the second buoy, and it didn't scare me a bit!
What would you do differently?:

Learn to swim faster, somehow.
Transition 1
  • 02m 14s

This T was kind of a bust because I had forgotten to put the number on my bike, so it took me forever to dig itout of the goody bag and slap it on my bike.
What would you do differently?:

Not do what I mentioned above.
  • 42m 10s
  • 13.5 miles
  • 19.21 mile/hr

I passed people like crazy, especially on the uphills. I felt like a mean machine! My shifting skills have really improved, and I felt like I was riding economically. My hip flexors got a bit sore halfway in.
Transition 2
  • 01m 52s

I moved a little slower than usual, because once again I had forgotten my race number and had to dig.
What would you do differently?:

See above, :).
  • 27m 17s
