I was in 4th wave and water was pretty choppy at first -- I swam with my head above water until the first bouy.
First tri of the season, so nerves were a bit on edge at first. Got into a rhythm after rounding first bouy.

OWS more

Since I live down the road from the race, I've been practicing the bike course. I averaged 1 mph more in the race than in practice.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing -- I felt like I rocked the course. I was passed by very few people

Heh - I started racking my bike in the wrong spot...

T2 time added to run time.
What would you do differently?:

pay attention?

My heart rate was way up when I started the run .. stopped and walked about 30 yds to help get it down....

I had to walk up the off-road hill --
What would you do differently?:

Nothing -- it was a "different" run course that is unique to this race.
Post race
Warm down:

watermelon, banana, walking and stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

nothing. I was pleased to place in the top half of my age group.

Event comments:

Great local race -- Local Rotary is major sponsor and nice to see familiar faces around. I'll do it again.
