Pre-race routine:

Had banana and granola (with a little coffee) for breakfast about 2 hrs before start. Had a PowerGel about 30-40 min before start.
Event warmup:

stretched and did some heel kicks and high knees. Didn't swim because i didn't want to go in the water then freeze while waiting for the start (like i saw a bunch of folks doing)
  • 32m 42s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 11s / 100 meters
Transition 1
  • 01m 2s

T1 felt good and quick to me. No socks, just grabbed the helmet, glasses and put on the shoes and went.
What would you do differently?:

Learn how to keep shoes in pedals and transition that way.
  • 1h 31m 5s
  • 27.96 miles
  • 18.42 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

Got a little lost in T2 but it didn't take too much time. Felt a little slower than T1. Went with no socks.
  • 56m 47s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 09m 08s  min/mile

Felt really bad for the first mile, wasn't sure i was even going to finish. But eventually I felt better after the first aid station at mile 1 and got into a groove. not a fast groove, but a groove! Saw the guy in my AG that beat me pass me though, so that sucked.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe take a little off the bike so i dont feel so wiped out at the beginning of the run.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched a lot. Forgot my compression socks though. Sat in the lake for awhile and cooled down!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Need more speed work and base endurance so i can not be wiped out at the beginning of the run.

Event comments:

I always like this race. Small crowd and great people. Kudos to Brittons and all the volunteers.
