Pre-race routine:

Did a quick count of events in my head.
Event warmup:

1 lap swim
  • 07m 35s
  • 250 yards
  • 03m 02s / 100 yards
What would you do differently?:

Adjust goggles tighter, water seeped in on every other lap.
Transition 1
  • 00m
What would you do differently?:

A swim buddy passed after turn 2 in the pool, by the time I was on my bike, he was still in T1
  • 38m
  • 10 miles
  • 15.79 mile/hr
What would you do differently?:

I was anticipating a 40 min ride, but I did it in less time!
Transition 2
  • 03m
  • 34m
  • 3 miles
  • 11m 20s  min/mile

Run without socks next time and invest in some type of speed lacing system.
What would you do differently?:

Practice practice practice .. still debating whether to wear socks or not. On the 2nd lap, i pretty much ran out of energy so I did a combination of run-walk-run-walk .. So, next time, I will run twice the distance or something.
Post race
Warm down:

Had a bagel w/ peanut butter, good way to get my energy back and plenty of fluids.

Event comments:

As a 1st timer, I thought it was very well organized. I was nervous going into the swim but felt at ease on lap 2. Volunteers were cheerful and motivating. I had a lot of fun. I will definitely do it again next year!
