start was less crowded for me this year, found open water fairly fast. first buoy was hell, lots of aggression. remainder of the swim was straight forward, pretty open as I stayed more to the outside. Time improved from last year.

run was off this year for me. Felt ok but pace was slow. Just didn't have the run volume in training to support a solid performance I guess.
Post race
Warm down:

decent in the legs and wasn't cramping. very hot.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

needed more run volume in my training, otherwise similar to previous years.

Event comments:

again an awesome race by WTC. They had Kona Longboard again this year, which I guzzled down my 3 beer allotment.

Best conditions so far for Honu, unfortunately my run just wasn't great, but I was happy to finish.

Looks like you're in for Kona! Congrats!

Now you know you really need to work on the run, because Kona is not going to be any kinder to you than Honu. Good luck!

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
