D, should have listened to you years ago. Morro Bay tri turned out to be one of the highlight vacations for our family all year. The surrounding area is just spectacular; I can see why you might want to retire there. Man, the weather on Saturday was just remarkable; 84 degrees in spots! The race location, just phenomenal.

On to race day - Nanc dropped me off and it wasn't too bad finding a place to rack. It was good to finally introduce coach Derrill to coach Tim in the morning as well. I was pretty excited to use the new wetsuit, too.
Chang and I got to the front of the swim pack, Chang up a few more rows (key thing!). Wow when we took off swimming, that was a total free-for-all. I tried to be patient and not get kicked too much. Lo and behold, Chang was battling it out up front and I didn't get by him until past the first buoy. Things finally opened up but it looked like there were a bunch of swimmers way ahead. I was sort of deflated thinking how the F can they be so much faster. When we got out to do lap 2, Derrill said "You're top 10!". That was a key and huge boost of confidence. I dove back in and followed another guy. We went way right and swam through the seaweed. It was a more direct line but likely slower. Coming back home I tried to push the pace. Came out of the water in 15:59 thrilled though the course was likely short. Tore out of T1 and Tim said "you're in 6th place".
I took my time getting up to speed on the bike but, in so doing, got passed by Stephano Profumo (who went on to 3rd overall). He wasn't in my AG, so ok. Then we got out on Hwy 1. The head and crosswinds were unsettling but manageable. Then it got scary. I had made a dumb gear decision as well. My BMC tri bike has a 50mm and 60mm front aero wheel. The 50 is significantly better in cross winds than the 60 so I use it in most cases. Well for the new Parlee I decided to get a 60 front wheel. Dumbass. I should have listened to my own experience and got something less aggressive and better able to handle cross winds.
In any case there were a few times when I thought I would literally get blown over so I just shut it down. Sat up and rode the base bars; at this point I just wanted to finish safely. My heart rate was just 152 avg for the whole thing. Some monster blew by me seemingly unaffected by the wind before the 1/2 way mark. Shit, from 6 to 8th place now. At the turn around I resolved to refocus. Especially since Chang appeared not soon after! Holy cow, Chang was racing while I was surviving. The wind wasn't as gusty on the way back though there was a stiffer headwind. Coming back in to town I actually caught one guy so back to 7th place.
(To this point I had a 2:31 swim + 8 sec T1 advantage on Chang.
On the bike he clawed back 45 seconds plus 16 more in T2. So he was down just 1:30 heading out to the run.)
In T2 I bent at an awkward angle to rack my bike then swung down to pull on my shoes. *Bang*, threw out my back. I gimped out of T2 like there was a rod in my butt. I honestly thought about DNFing right there. But I saw Nancy and the kids; Lily said "Chang is 2 minutes behind".
I was able to hold 7:30 pace but no faster as my back was now pulling on my hamstring which then aggravated the still unhealed right Achilles. Ugh. Trying to calculate - 2minute lead. There is no fing way Chang won't catch me. He'd be able to go 6:40 or 7 pace.
The only prayer I had was that he'd find the course similarly challenging and that would somehow slow him down. Mile 3 on the road I tried to increase pace but could only muster 7:12. Like a shark coming for it's prey as we turned on toward the beach, Chang came pounding toward me then just "went around" as I gingerly went down the steps.
On the hard pack sand Chang didn't increase his pace that much. Ah maybe the cagey veteran can just hang with him and somehow outsprint at the end I thought.

Suddenly Tim appeared on his bike. He gave me some words of encouragement (relax! refocus! loosen your shoulders! just let it flow). He then scooted up to Chang and must have dropped what amounted to mental steroids because Chang just fing took off! To be honest, BroSo, I didn't even see you run that last portion up the beach, you were that far ahead.
It was remarkable to see you just keep extending until...you were gone.

In the end Chang ran 3 1/2 mins faster - 7 pace vs my 7:38 and got me by 2:06.
It looks like Chang should have got a podium spot as well as it looks like you are 3rd AG/8th overall.
I should have been 2nd AG but for some reason they didn't include the monster who blew by me in the results so I got 1st AG.
