Pre-race routine:

Up early. Had some oatmeal and a banana. Mixed up a 1 scoop perpetuem and 24 oz water for the pre-hydration.
Event warmup:

I jogged 1 loop of the course, about 2 miles. I got in the water early and swam a bit for a warmup.
  • 39m 18s
  • 2187 yards
  • 01m 48s / 100 yards

I wandered off course a few times. My drafting sucked for the first 1000m as well as my stroke was poor for the first 1000m
What would you do differently?:

I need to settle down into my good stroke earlier. Sight more often.
Transition 1
  • 01m 22s

Need to get some quick laces on these shoes!!
What would you do differently?:

Practice more wetsuit removal. Get some laces for shoes.
  • 27m 19s
  • 4 miles
  • 06m 50s  min/mile

I ran very well. I am very happy with this run
What would you do differently?:

Maybe a bit more agressive at the beginning.
Post race
Warm down:

Ate some cookies and caught my breath.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My OWS experience seemed to be reset to rookie. I need to get out there and get used to it again.

Event comments:

I am a big fan of the casual, small scale and just fun these races are. Great Race!
