2 Loops, got stuck behind people walking on the beach in-between laps.
Transition 1
  • 10m 3s

It was a long way so I just got ready outside the tent then ran through. Not bad for me.

Had a sore back so I got off at every aid station (except the first and last), layer down and stretched the back out.
What would you do differently?:

It was a PR for my ride portion even with all the stops. Next race I'll show up healthy.

Need more of a run base.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not being to train consistently in the months prior to the race.
