Pre-race routine:

Checked in an hour before start time. Laid out my run gear in transition. Talked to the Tri-Zones girls. Hung out.
Event warmup:

Swam a few yards with Lance as a warmup. Well, we were in the water together for about 2 minutes. I couldn't hang. Maybe next time.

Decent swim since I haven't had much practice. Drafted at the beginning, then lost the pack. Got a little tired. Sighting was okay.
What would you do differently?:

Note to self, more time in the water.
