Pre-race routine:

getting there.....on time, the goal.

ibid, above.
Swim
  • 08m 9s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 51s / 100 yards
Comments:

sighting/direction was on & off. current & me.....
What would you do differently?:

go harder at the end, tho' sighting into the sunrise was difficult/blinding to see the finish.
Transition 1
  • 03m 54s
Comments:

can improve, most def T1
What would you do differently?:

set up for quicker exit; run with bike alittle faster; go past mounting line if others are crowding me (they were...) single tie or go with cheap rubber bands on cleat heals for snap-release, get feet secured quicker/sooner in line.
Bike
  • 28m 9s
  • 10 miles
  • 21.31 mile/hr
Comments:

many good cyclists out there, some on roadies too.
What would you do differently?:

going to have to stand up more often and push alittle harder, methinks, to shave time and have a shot at 1st place in AG. Can I pull a 22mph pls Lord? (w/out hurting the run, that is?)
Transition 2
  • 01m 48s
Comments:

need to shave more time here too
Winner got some T1-2 freebie help from me today, big time!
What would you do differently?:

Get in & the #(%#)$* out!
Run
  • 26m 23s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 31s  min/mile
Comments:

1st here was duly appreciated, but Lord knows I can run a 25min here (or better yet, miraculous 24+min something?) As with bikers, there were many good (young especially...) runners here today. (runners clubs?)
What would you do differently?:

push alittle harder for 25' or better. Being looser w/out butt-hamy cramps would def help the cause.
Post race
Warm down:

pant, pant, pa...........

What limited your ability to perform faster:

muscle tightness which leads to questionable "conservatism"....methinks.

Event comments:

have two more to go in this series, b4 I can adequately comment here on Multi-Race Series.

Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.
