Pre-race routine:

Got to T1 at 6:30 expecting it to close at 7. It never really closed. Found my space and went to grab some breakfast. My wave went off at 8:50 so I had some time.
Event warmup:

Same about 150 out and 150 back. Was a good thing, practicing on the surf and realizing my bibjohn needed to be tightened.

Nice OWS swim. Nothing remarkable to mention.

Nothing to add.

wet towel on head, banana and water.

Event comments:

Great job. Only thing that needs work is the waiting for your gear from T1 issue. It took about 90 min to get my gear. If I do this race again I would try to pass off my T1 bag to Milagros at the bike start so no need to wait.

Course: Beach run about 30 yds then run in water. Made it through the surf easily. Did a small bit of zig zagging, other than that I felt I did a decent jo on the swim and I ran up the beach which enabled me to pass about 5 people. Heading out surf was a little high but timed just ride and only had to duck dive maybe twice.
