Pre-race routine:

The day before the race, I spent hours weeding, chopping up a stump, digging the stump up and hauling rocks.

Got to bed at a reasonable hour.
Event warmup:

Woke up, made some oatmeal and coffee. Took our time and drove over. Checked in and then found a spot in transition. Jogged quick and rushed to get wetsuit on and head to the start of the swim.
  • 17m 23s
  • 880 yards
  • 01m 59s / 100 yards

I honestly thought it was quite a bit faster. Easier to get past the break water. Felt like we swam with the current, but had to fight it a bit coming in.

I was right off the back of the front pack which was weird. Top swims were in the 13:xx range. Not many at that, so I am pretty happy.

Really never found anyone to draft off. I lead the 2nd pack and caught up to the front pack right as we turned to head in.

Despite the slow average speed I think I had a great swim looking at the other times.
What would you do differently?:

Swim harder.
Transition 1
  • 00m 54s

11th fastest OA.
What would you do differently?:

Not get caught behind someone. Crazy packed transition.
  • 44m
  • 16 miles
  • 21.82 mile/hr

Some what windy.

Reset my PT like normal before the race, but at the start of the race the CPU never picked up the wheel. So I raced blind.
What would you do differently?:

Possibly could have pushed more.
Transition 2
  • 00m 57s

Slow. Had to redo one shoe. As I first put it on, I collapsed the heal tab.
What would you do differently?:

Setup shoes better.
  • 20m 47s
  • 3 miles
  • 06m 56s  min/mile

Lackluster. I did not feel good until into the last mile. I think the run was short.
What would you do differently?:

Not do yard work the day before.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked for a minute. Almost went back in the water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Yard work the day before. No real training for almost 2 weeks.

Event comments:

Great to race local. Should do it more. 20th OA, 2nd AG.

Pretty happy overall.
