The swim includes the run-up from the water exit to the transition area. This was from a dock , along a boardwalk, across a street and finally into transition. My watch gave me a 8:45 swim so I had a 1:30 run-up.

Nothing. Felt this was the best swim of the year.

Slight hills at the beginning slowed my "getting up to speed" feeling.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of proper training for the course. I didn't prepare for hills.

Course: The start of the course was a bit awkward with the middle of the street coned off for the bikes to allow traffic both ways. However once we exited the side streets in town and were on our way down the main stretch it was a very pleasant ride with little rolling rises and very little traffic.
