Race Report:

Scenery, scenery and more scenery. Obviously I was enthralled with the race venue. As for the race, met my goals and plenty of lessons learned for the next time. Swim was tantamount to salmons heading upstream to spawn (1:05),T1 was slow(:12), a bit conservative on the bike after listening to the race director emphasizing not to go out too fast on the first loop because the second one will haunt you (6:14), T2 slow, again(:8) and held back on the run (4:32). All in all can't complain, thoroughly enjoyed it.
