What limited your ability to perform faster:

Poor training due to foot injury the past two weeks.

Event comments:

Very nice race. Need more buoys on the swim. A balloon arch at the swim finish would be a good idea, due to the sun difficulties. Need better parking near the transition area.

Wow!  Great race, I was going to say your bike split was great but all of your times are really good.  Nice job.

Thanks for the kind words.

I officially have the tri-bug.

I'm glad that you didn't say anything about my transition times...cuz they suck.

Happy training!
