Learn to swim correctly and practice.

Be in better shape.

Time estimated again. This one went OK as well.

Foot hurt from the start, still not bad considering I've run only once since June (RiverCities) and barely run at all this year.
Almost three minutes slower than last year.
What would you do differently?:

Train? Got to get over this PF.
Post race
Warm down:

Had some water and cookies, then walked back to the start, loaded up gear and rode bike back to finish and the car.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Injury which has kept me from running.

Event comments:

Good race, brings out a lot of first-timers. Lose points this year because they didn't have any jambalaya.

Third year in a row I won my AG, not many in it this year and one guy faster than me won the overall masters, so was taken out of the AG.

Hey John, You looked great on that Red Cervelo. I really expected you to be officiating at this event.

The run will come back, just give it chance.
