Typical mediocre swim. Due to sighting, I ended up swim some unnecessary distances. I was aiming for 1:30:00 but ended up with 1:39:00.
What would you do differently?:

I need to practice more on sighting at both pool and OWS.

Event comments:

The goal at the beginning of 2013 was to complete two (2) 140.6. Full Vineman was the first one and HITS Lake Havasu Long Distance was the second. I am very happy I was able to complete this task. Next year (2014), I plan to do two (2) Long Distance again; and some 70.3 events.

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.
