The swim went well and the water was fine. Couldn't see anything in the water and my goggles fogged up about half way through so my navigation suffered.

Warm down:

No warm down to speak of really. Rev 3 was tearing down the finish line when I arrived....

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Hills!

Event comments:

The destination is great for getting the family to come with you and the volunteers were AWESOME. I am really disappointed in REV 3 though. The expo was not set up for half the day and they were tearing down the finish line immediately after the award ceremonies. So for us slow people that meant no post race. Got the medal, towel and a drink. That was it. Rev 3 did not represent well in this regard.
