Terrible. Had the worst side ache of my life...Tried to run through it but wouldn't have made it. Had to walk a MILE...that was very frustrating...but at least i can improve next time...right?

Warm down:

rode bike to car

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Possibly some lack of bike to run transition, not knowing nutrition schedule, not training in HOT weather (20 degrees over normal for NE)
