Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 6:00, bathroom, got dressed, ate a couple breakfast claws and drank water. Then gathered my gear and walked over to sign in to get setup.
Event warmup:

An easy couple of minute swim after getting the wetsuit on and then back out of the water to wait for my wave to start.
  • 00m
  • 880 yards
  • / 100 yards

This was my first race in the new Xterra wetsuit, and first open water swim other than my warmup this year. Lost rhythm a few times and had to "reset" my breathing. About what I expected for my training (or lack of) level.

Course: Out and back along the park road and then onto hwy 104. A little vehicle traffic, but the drivers were careful as they passed. CHP monitored for safety. Roads in the park were ok, a little rougher than I remembered from last year. Several speed bumps to cross. Areas with many small round pavement markers near pedestrian areas in the park also. Once onto hwy 104 the pavement is more rough, but very few potholes. Some low rolling hills but no big climbs. Turnaround is very tight in the middle of the roadway, but well manned by volunteers warning riders in advance.
