Really great swim for me. I was able to find some fast feet early on and held on for dear life. The pace was tough, but I knew if I dropped off I would slow WAY down.

Wanted to average closer to FTP (still hit 207, 211 normalized), but this was still a good effort. Stayed pretty consistent throughout.

Left a few watts out there

It was getting hot and it doesn't seem like I could improve my place in the race after a couple early passes, so I just kept a hard pace, but held back a little with tomorrow in mind.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, got some food and drinks, packed up. Post race massage from the PT student was excellent.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing really

Event comments:

So cool to be back here celebrating the 10th anniversary of my very first triathlon. And all these years and experiences later, this still is one of the best out there.
