Water temp was perfect. I got the crap beat out of me at the 1st bouy but things opened up after that. Went a bit wide down the stretch so had to get back on course. The swim exit was a bit rough with big rocks and jagged concrete but lots of volunteers to assist no real problem.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Pace was good. maybe pay attention to navigation a bit more

nothing

Comments:

Saw a bad wreck. Two bikes collided the girl looked unconscious. lots of blood. Several people were assisting her. nothing I could do. Thornton and I traded places a few time but we are so close in bike fitness so we came into transition together, but he got stuck behind some people so I sniped a position.
What would you do differently?:

I would like to have pushed a bit harder but with all the turns, and road hazards I backed off a bit
Transition 2
  • 01m 17s
Comments:

I got a bit disorientated when I came into transition for just a second but figured it out as i was moving forward so no real problem. Real fast and smooth

Comments:

I will have to check but I think this is my fastest 10K. Ive never felt this good. My stride was great, I felt so fast
What would you do differently?:

I took a full two weeks to taper and that was key.

Knowing where the fluids are, how they will fit on your bike, how much to reach for, and when to reach for it should be understood prior to ever setting foot on the course.
