Transition 1
  • 01m

Darned suit keeps getting stuck on heels. Just STOMP on the suit! First race leaving shoes clipped in, felt good (except for pebbles on my feet). Had to get in the shoes quickly due to upcoming turn, not bad for my first race.
What would you do differently?:

Remember how to step on suit so heels don't get stuck.

I knew this would be a slow run due to cutback in training after my running injury (Morton's Neuroma). Felt weak, some stitches in my side (drank too much on the bike). Got through it.

Not get injured
