Race Report:

Pre-race: took the 6:15 shuttle from the Columbia Sheraton over to Centennial, had plenty of time to setup before transition closed at 7:00. Had time to burn waiting for my wave at 7:37.

Swim: 0.62 miles (1000 m), 28:25. I'm not the fastest swimmer so I'll take it. The lake wasn't that bad, but near the swim exit I could feel a bunch of seaweed/millfoil/plants all around.

Bike: 17.5 miles, 1:05:27. I did right about what I expected. I
biked this course almost every Sunday with the MMTC/Iron Girl group so there were no surprises.

Run: 3.3 miles, 30:30. This was a tough run, hot and hilly. Did OK past the Gatorade hill on the way out, but coming around the ballfield and heading back in, I had to walk a bit and I wasn't quite the same afterwards.
