Set up my two transition areas the afternoon before the race, the bike area was HUGE
The night before the race Branson hosted a welcome concert on the landing. We watched while anchored on the lake until the fog got to thick to see anything.
I was not ready for the total chaos that the bike transition turned into on the morning of the race. Luckily I had everything set up the day before, so all I had to do was make sure nothing got moved overnight.
Then it was time to start, I had been fearing this swim for months and it was for nothing. I went into the water and found this perfect rythum. I was at the far turn-around before I knew it.
I was out of the water and running up the beach still amazed at how quick and easy the swim had gone
IM70.3 finisher! Next year I'll do it faster.
