80F / 27C
Total Time = 3h 34m 10s
Overall Rank = 19/71
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 4/10
Pre-race routine:

Up at 4am, pack the car and the family and head to the race. Ate a PB and banana sandwich on the way out with just a little coffee so I dotn get a caffiene headache during the race.
Event warmup:

just swam a bit to loosen up prior to the race start
  • 27m 2s
  • 1760 yards
  • 01m 32s / 100 yards

Decent swim for me ... had some goggle issues at the start but got it sorted out pretty quick and kept going. Probably cost me about 30-45 sec on the swim
Transition 1
  • 03m 29s

had troubles getting the speedsuit off and that cost me about 1 min here. Other than that, it would have been about my normal T1 time
  • 1h 48m 8s
  • 40 miles
  • 22.19 mile/hr

Had a plan, stuck with it, and posted my fastest bike split ever. Cant complain about that
What would you do differently?:

nothing. Went out hard but not at a pace that would kill my run
Transition 2
  • 01m 10s

average T1 time
  • 1h 14m 18s
  • 9 miles
  • 08m 16s  min/mile

considering I havent run in a few weeks due to so PF issues, this was going to be an unknown. Thought I ran well, only fell off my goal pace on miles 7 and 8 but pciked it up for the last mile to finish strong
Post race
Warm down:

lots of fluid .. could stomach any solid food though
