Division place: 14/47 Top 30% (Goal: Top 50%)
Gender place: 110/323 Top 34% (Goal: Top 50%)
Overall place: 403/806 Top 50% (Goal: Top 50%) Just BARELY made it! 

Lows: Crowded and scrappy swim — couldn’t get two strokes in without running over someone or having someone run over me; fogged goggles threw me way off course and buoy siting became a real time suck (as evidenced); slowest run ever and quite a backslide from last year (lack of run-training really shows).

Highs: Finally cracking the top 50% overall (a goal since day 1), and getting in the top third of my age-group; fastest bike ever at 17.8 mph and the 8th in my division on that leg (new goal will be to clock a race over 18mph this season; with less wind that could actually happen); killing in transitions; and making it through the run without stopping once to walk and without injury to IT to PF, which – having not run since injuries in January, feels like a victory, anyway.
