I'm proud of all of this, my only predicted goal was a sub-30-minute swim, which i beat by a minute and a half. My generally fun/good feeling on the bike was worth it, even with a bathroom stop and two maintenance stops for helping someone else and myself. Not doing that would only have moved me up a couple ranks in the division. The run was brutally hilly and I really didn't train appropriately for that, nor did I train in that heat or air.
