Seat post bolt came loose and seat dropped into the tube. Stopped to fix it unsucessfully.
What would you do differently?:

Borrowed bike, would have been nice to have some time on the bike to get comfortable with shifting and cornering. Felt a little unstable. Unfortunately weather didnt cooperate. Seat issue wouldnhave been fixed before race and would have saved me 4 min at least. All in all things that are easy to improve on.

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.
