Pre-race routine:

Banana, bread/ honey and some water.
Event warmup:

went out to swim and my tinted goggles broke! glad they broke before the race. went and got my clear goggles with enough time for a 2 minute warmup swim.
  • 35m 48s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 42s / 100 yards

OK swim, got hit and kicked alot. someone was drafting me the whole time, they kept hitting my feet no matter where I moved to. after last buoy, swam straight into the sun and could not see since I had to change to my clear goggles last minute.
What would you do differently?:

pack an extra pair of tinted goggles!
Transition 1
  • 04m 9s

holy crap this transition got me! I didn't wear sandals like most people did but I definetly should have. they just redid the road and it hurt my feet horribly!!!
  • 3h 03m 26s
  • 56 miles
  • 18.32 mile/hr

felt good biking. the road was terrible in spots due to the repaiving going on. just glad I didn't flat. butt got a little sore by the end of the ride. wish I could have finished stronger.
What would you do differently?:

should not have stopped at the water stop to refill water bottle! I did the first one on the fly but for some reason stopped for the second. ended up losing a couple minutes and i didn't even need the water!
Transition 2
  • 01m 22s

I was in the second rack so It was pretty quick in and out.
  • 2h 05m 19s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 34s  min/mile

started out feeling great! then i had to walk at the water stops. then my calfs started cramping and toes would curl. ouch! tried to run from water to water. slowly but surely I made it!
What would you do differently?:

try not to stop running!
