Transition 2

very sore and stiff and cold. My feet were completely numb due to the cold air. I felt okay in the core, hands were warm enough, ears okay. But my whole feet felt like stumps.
Put those chemical feet warmers in my shoes before I took off. they bunched up a little but flattened out during the run. This helped my toes to warm up and got me started running sooner. Had to walk out.

very hilly course...long slow rides up, some very rough patches
Wind: Cross-winds
Course: short trip around the neighborhood, then long ride up John King road and back then through the neighborhood. rented a bike. My inner thighs started to hurt on first 10, ached a lot throughout. Probably due to incorrect fit on rented bike. the shop just fit the seat to me, no other adjustments were made. I did use the aero bars, brought my own and had them installed for the race. really glad I had them.
