Event warmup:

Short swim.
  • 10m 54s
  • 500 yards
  • 02m 11s / 100 yards

Swam along a breast stroker for the final third. Figured she was sighting every stoke, so I just checked on her when I breathed and didn't have to sight the whole way in. Good thing because it was looking into the sun.
Transition 1
  • 02m 36s

Forgot about the cap and goggles and tried to put on the helmet over them. I was so focused on trying to run a little better into T1 that I forgot to take them off.

Way to go out there today!  Boy, did it get HOT out quickly or what?  Right around 8:30AM, the heat index was already 93F for Venice!  That's tough stuff!  You did awesome!  Big congrats to you!
