Comments:

Had a decent swim but never feel like I can break away from the group in this race. My best swim time here was when they did a time trial start a few years ago. Just a tough start in a small area.
What would you do differently?:

Not much here. Comfortable pace mostly because I felt like I could not get out and really open it up.
Transition 1
  • 02m 18s
Comments:

HUGE, LONG transition area. I feel like my transitions were okay considering the size of the area.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. Would eventually keep shoes on bike but in this situation feet would have been covered in mud.

Was happy with this transition for the most part.

Comments:

A lot disappointed by the time I finished but happy to still be under 8 min miles.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure...run more after biking on windy, hilly courses.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Struggled with the wind and the heat.

Event comments:

Good race but often a little more hyped up than I think it deserves. Expensive and the Championship race has a lot of no-shows. There were lots of empty spots on the racks from people who did not show up.
