Pre-race routine:

Drove with the family early to get there for a good parking spot. Had plenty of time. They assigned bike racks from your race number -got a great spot and set up. Drank 1/2 a Huel before leaving the house. Drank a few more swigs before the event. Made sure to use the potty ahead of time.
Event warmup:

Rode my bike up the main road and set the gears. Changed to running shoes and did some light jogging. Otherwise, stood around and waiting in the waves to start.

What would you do differently?:

I swam off course rounding the 1st bouy. Need to do better at sighting. Also went out so hard on the run that my heart rate was too high. Had to slow my swim to catch my breath. Be more steady and not so all over the place on effort level.

I think I missed my clip the first time - took a sec to get going
What would you do differently?:

Overall really pleased with my bike. I was too slow at the turnarounds and got caught up behind slower bikers.
