Post race
Warm down:

none I looked for my Wife and a shade tree.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training I went into this race very under trained and I knew it,

Event comments:

Despite coming in last in my Age group I did come in. And that was my goal I had a very short training period leading up to the race and I knew I was very very limited in my fitness. So I rate this race as a good race even with the poor finishing time.I am back into triathlon and will build from this point.
