Pre-race routine:

Drank a sugar-free energy drink and ate a cookie on the drive to the race site. Set up my transition, Used my Compex unit on my calves to try to loosen them up.
Event warmup:

Compex stimulation of my calves, light stretching.
  • 06m 58s
  • 400 yards
  • 01m 44s / 100 yards

Could've walked the entire swim if you wanted to. Hands touched in a couple places. Lost some time running up the beach.
Transition 1
  • 01m 27s

Forgot to water to rinse the sand off of my feet. Had to suck water out of my aero bottle and spit onto my feet (that was a first).
What would you do differently?:

Water and towel for my feet.
  • 39m 59s
  • 13 miles
  • 19.51 mile/hr

Could've definitely went out much harder than I did.
What would you do differently?:

Push the pace a little bit harder.
Transition 2
  • 01m 20s

Long run from dismount line to transition.
  • 33m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 58s  min/mile

Was going at a sub-8 pace out of transition, legs felt great. A little more than 1/2 mile into the run I started having severe pain in my middle toe on my left foot. Turns out that on one of the decents I tore my toe nail in 1/2 and it was bent back and caught on my shoe. Pace slowed quite a bit and I even walked some. Finally got on a road for the last 1/2 mile and hit a sub-6 pace for a good part of it.
What would you do differently?:

Not break a toe nail.
Post race
Warm down:

Pick up transition, change, awards, and drive home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My toe nail.
