Water was super warm. Going out to 1st buoy, all was good. Once you make that turn it started to get choppy. After the next buoy it was super choppy.

This bike course is rolling hills but can be super fast. Going out there is an initial sharp 180 that sucks, but once you get on the causeway you have a tailwind that lets you go super fast.
What would you do differently?:

Some mistakes I made during the Hawaii Ironman 70.3. Don't be caught out on the course not knowing how or not having the equipment to change a flat tire.

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
