I waited in line for the bathrooms (forever!) and lathered up with sunscreen. Then it was time to head down to the water for quick warm up swim. The water temp was a balmy 80 degrees so no wetsuits were allowed. I have never done a swim in tri gear without a wetsuit so I wanted to make sure my top felt okay while swimming. I got in a quick warm up and was happy to report the top and shorts felt just fine without the wetsuit.

The Run - 6.2 miles
What was very interesting was that I finished the run in the exact same time (to the second) as last year: 1:04:11. My Garmin recorded the run course as 6.35 (instead of 6.2). I didn't have the Garmin last year so I don't know if the course was a bit long last year too.
