Post race
Warm down:

Walk around, walked to find dad, ran back to the finish line giving him motivation.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Swim goggles filling with water, not breathing well during swim. Still new at new run gait, so more miles under the belt, and more speed work for sure.
