Good swim. Led out the wave. First 250 or so there were a few guys around but I managed to break free after that and put some distance between me and the pack. Then it was just buoy to buoy. Finish was in a boat house/boat lift so that was a bit awkward getting out but not too bad.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing.

Decent bike. Got caught at mile 3 or so, and tried to keep the guy in sight. The rest of the ride was pretty uneventful. Just try to keep the power up and the legs turning over. Nice to see folks on the out and back.
What would you do differently?:

Push a little harder. Minute or 2 faster would be nice!

Good run. Was running a bit scared since I knew I was in 3rd and there were some guys that looked fast back there. Kept 2nd in sight but couldn't gain on him. Got up to speed and kept the pace high the whole time.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...one of my better runs in a tri. Actually a 10k PR by a second!
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothin' much.

Event comments:

Good inaugural race. Nice location. Hope it grows and becomes a staple on the calendar!

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

My first attempt two years ago was not so successful when a deck nail found its way into my foot a week before the race. But I kept plugging away the last couple of years to stay healthy and get back.

Knowing where the fluids are, how they will fit on your bike, how much to reach for, and when to reach for it should be understood prior to ever setting foot on the course.
