Pre-race routine:

Drove about 45 minutes, Granola Bar, Banana on the way.
  • 12h 36m
  • 440 yards
  • 2h 51m 49s / 100 yards

Listed at 440 yards, was about 100 yards longer due to change in buoy placement from previous years. All times were 2-3 minutes slower for everyone.

Got a nice inside lane and had people to my right for sighting, good rhythm.
What would you do differently?:

Went well, even practiced an OWS here prior to the race.

Speed work!

Event comments:

Local race. 5th time completing this course. Good beginner race, with a super flat bike and calm water. Not sure why the swim distance changed to be longer, assume it was just an error.
