Post race
Warm down:

cold towel had a muscle milk

What limited your ability to perform faster:

swim training and helmet/ chain issues could have been avoided. also going to look for a new front hydration solution.

Event comments:

great race would do it again but the cost is a bit high so it may be a year or two before i give it another go. Maybe try another one.
