None for this event.

My watch strap came undone within the first 50m and goggles got some water in them.
What would you do differently?:

Check watch before jumping in, get goggles / face wet for a good bond.

Had some bad drainage from all the pollen
What would you do differently?:

Should take an allevert or some other allergy medicine before the race to avoid drainage. Once it cleared, all was well.

my pedal got stuck on the rack post since i was close to it but not a major problem

go harder
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Shoes were at the end of the life so new shoes will help in my next race.

Event comments:

It was ok, Dallas Athletes put on a much better race with better organization, and post events. Event photos sucked, not a major factor but its always nice to have some evidence.
