Followed my coaches advice to ride easy enough to have a good run...I could have gone harder on the bike. Overall I am pleased with this segment.

Lose weight train on running more..

Warm down:

Light snack of banana, Hammer recovery drink. Little pacing.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Excess body weight.

Event comments:

There seemed to ba fewer volunteers at this race than the last one I did here. Maybe cause of summer break. Overall a good race I love the bike course and running through the park was a treat. I think they could have had 2 more water stations on the run but other than that a nice course.
