Up a couple hours before race start for breakfast and coffee, then walked the 5 min down the hill to transition.

Got in the water and got in about 10min WU with some pick ups.
  • 38m 51s
  • 2000 meters
  • 01m 56s / 100 meters

Not too bad! The usual OMG I have to do this twice on the first loop, then Hey this isn't so bad on the second. It's my MO, I am used to it by now :) Chop came up a bit on the second loop, but nothing terrible.
Transition 1

Half kilometer run to transition....

A bit conservative on the way out, and then hammer on the way back. So nice to not have to hold back to run!

Funny how it was not supposed to be a swim-bike-run race, yet, you had to run half km to the transition
I'm glad you enjoyed it!
