Pre-race routine:

Registered on site
Event warmup:

None, some stretching, bobbed in the water
  • 35m 58s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 11s / 100 yards

Good swim, felt solid for last 300 meters
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 03m 27s

Still a little slow getting into shoes. I need to start training without socks and consider transition shoes or race flats. That could probably save me 60 seconds. Worked really well to put shirt and race belt on during the run rather than in transition.
What would you do differently?:

Still want to practice with wearing tri top underneath wetsuit
  • 26m 55s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 41s  min/mile

Felt great during the run. Good weather, passed a few people, and skipped the aid station as I already needed to pee.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Nothing, drank some vitamin water

Event comments:

My family came out to watch and that was a really great motivator for me.
