Comments:

"Navigation" issues were other swimmers. Kicked in stomach once, arms repeatedly, kept pausing to swim around people.
BUT...I never paused because it was too much freestyle. :-)
Rained during swim.
What would you do differently?:

no clue. Practice?

Just raining too hard to go fast. I didn't even try.
Pelting rain for 1st 4 miles. Strong headwind mile 6-10 or so.
What would you do differently?:

I needed more practice, but today it wouldn't have mattered. Only a fool goes all-out when the weather's like that.

Comments:

75 degrees & I was still hot. Poured water on my already wet head at water stops & it helped.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Was a good run. Drier would've been nice...but the lessening of heat was well worth wet shoes.
Post race
Warm down:

Generally stretched, got fluids & food. Changed & went straight to churhc, funny enough.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weather mostly ;-)
I should've prepared on the bike more too.

Event comments:

VERY supportive volunteers. Several unexpected friends too! Was a great time!

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

My first attempt two years ago was not so successful when a deck nail found its way into my foot a week before the race. But I kept plugging away the last couple of years to stay healthy and get back.
