Pre-race routine:

Generation UCAN, banana.
Event warmup:

Laps in the warm-up pool.
  • 09m 43s
  • 500 yards
  • 01m 56s / 100 yards

Bought brand new Barracuda Elements (goggles) for myself and son. No problems in the warm up pool. Before we jumped in, I placed my swim cap on and went to put my goggles on and the plastic snapped off the strap. Luckily my son was able to put it back together for me. Close call, not sure I would have been able to do (I did try). Swim went well, nothing crazy fast, but I was comfortable the entire way and could have kept going. Years past I could barely wait to the finish. This swim was a lot of fun.
What would you do differently?:

Never use Barracuda goggles again for a race.

Event comments:

The rain put a damper on the after race activities, no fault of Setup Events or HFFA.
