While it poured down rain prior to the start, causing many of us to scurryback to transition to cover our cell phones or to try to keep other items dry, and lightening caused a 20 minute delay, the sun did come out and the pavement was dry for the bike portion.
The swim was very relaxing. I started in the front line, wasn't too frenetic. I did swim all the way up until I hit sand, but this year, I was careful to not lose my balance when I crossed the timing mat.
The bike was great, the run was a bit disappointing. I didn't do many brick workouts.
