Comments:

Ran with 2 guys from mile 4.5 onward, and we didn't push the pace near the finish - I was too worried I'd hurt something because I was running so far. Hit 13.10 on my Garmin at 1:26.18 (6:35.28)
What would you do differently?:

OH I DON'T KNOW… MAYBE NOT GET OFF THE COURSE?!?

I just had a couple of problems, I could count the number of triathlons I had contested at zero. Secondly, I could count on one hand the number of times I had been swimming in the last 17 years.
