Average swim. Swam to the outside to stay out of the mass. This hurt time a little, but overall no regrets on the swim.

Have got to work on T1 time. Having transition in a field always means cleaning the grass/dirt off my wet feet.

Felt like a good ride. AG placement wasn't all that great, but was less than 2 minutes off of fastest bike split for AG.

Satisfied with this time based on heat.

Warm down:

Ice baths, breakfast burritos, and Gatorade.

Event comments:

Probably Houston's best Sprint race. The price of this race is getting a little too expensive. While I understand all of the amenities that come with this race, $100 for an hour-long race is too expensive.

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.
