Thank you to whoever that was that I was able to pace off of- she was awesome, we stayed together the entire time- it was great and it helped me to swim faster.

not much except try not to worry so much in the water- the whole time I just wanted to get out!

really tough to run so far out of the water and up to the t1 and then jump on a bike, my legs were already spent on the forst 3-4 miles, I had to slow down and recover from the run up the hill! Really fast on the downhills, beautiful course, I was really zooming on the flats, passing guys- that's when I upped my avg speed above 18!
What would you do differently?:

practice running before jumping on bike

hot, peed after mile 2, and it was long. I was okay with my time

Great swim and race, and I agree, that run to transition is just plain rude.
