Comments:

Swim went very well for me. I lined up toward the front of the group, right in the middle, hoping to find some open water that way. Normally I would line up to the outside but that seemed to be where everyone else was gathering. Felt calm and smooth, drafted a few times and passed a couple of men from the wave in front of me.
I have some doubts as to the actual distance, it seemed long. Looking at the swim times for some of the leaders seems to confirm this.
What would you do differently?:

It is what it is. Getting to that age where "nothing is wrong but everything hurts" when I run. Took walk breaks every 5 minutes.

Event comments:

The new race directors have done a great job with "ramping up" this race from where it was a few years ago. Finishers pint glasses, great shirts, great post race food are all appreciated very much!
