A couple of short swims to get used to the cold water...

  • 400 yards
  • 02m 35s / 100 yards

Just as we rounded the jetty wall I came up to sight and took a wave to the face on inhale... spent the next 200 yards swimming on my back trying to stop coughing... MISERABLE experience...
What would you do differently?:

Sight forward and then breath to the side!

Good transition... out of the shallow water... short beach run then up a hill into the parking lot!

BUMPY ride but fairly flat... good ride for me!

Post race
Warm down:

Water... then breakfast!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Poor swim really set me behind!

Event comments:

Bike racks were AWFUL... for this being the 25th time they have done this triathlon I would have expected it to be more polished! Multiple racks tipped over with bikes hanging on them... not stable and TOO HIGH... bikes were all swinging in the light breeze! Swim entry and exit are really shallow! They do not use USAT Age Up rule for Age Group placement. NCN Racing is due for an upgrade in their process!
