Ironman St. George — T1

Time: 9:15 

This may have been too long. I came out of the water feeling all good and stuff, so I walked through the bags and grabbed mine. The wetsuit strippers were great and helped me pull the suit right off without any challenges. I walked up to the change tent and looked at the chairs set up outside for what I assumed was overflow and took a seat. It was really nice to have that much space and no stinky bodies.

I threw my HRM chest strap on, my cycling jersey, socks, shoes, and helmet. I double checked everything to make sure I was all put together and turned my bag into a nice volunteer. It was cold, but I decided to forego the jackets, legs warmers, and everything else. In the end it was a good decision. My assigned rack was at the end of T1, so I walked over and grabbed my bike. I started the Garmin and away I went.
