Put cleats on in transition, had short run to exit, gel dropped off bike just before mount line, picjked it up quickly and onto bike. Was raining and hailing during transition
What would you do differently?:

Gel came off because of rain loosening tape, will use better tape (rain or shine)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Possible anxiety at beginning of swim?

Event comments:

Considering weather conditions, there were enough volunteers, and they were cheerful and supportive. Race was well organized and went off on time and I had no issues with anything other than unusually bad weather. Swimming was what I actually prepared for the most, and felt would be my best portion, so was a little disappointed to have had an issue.

Good job on the race in those conditions. Rain definitely made things interesting, especially on the bike. Running in shoes that were soaked was a new one for me!
