Swim Exit 101
Step 1: Swim toward the finish. Know the course and find tall buildings or trees to sight that are in line with the swim exit.
Step 2: Activate your legs. Kick a little extra during the last 200 meters of the swim.
Step 3: Keep swimming! Don't stop or stand up until you have run aground in the shallow water. When your fingers scrape the bottom, take a few more strokes by pulling right under your torso.
Step 4: Stand and lift your goggles onto your forehead. This action clears your vision for any potential hazards underfoot as you start to run out of the water.
Step 5: Unzip your wetsuit on solid ground. Running through sand and rock is hard enough. Wait until you reach carpeting or pavement to search for that strap.
Step 6: Take off your cap and goggles when you see your bike. Abandonment of equipment can result in a penalty, so don't risk dropping these small items.
