Great job!

Did you have to run barefoot on concrete to T1?

The downhill cycling sounds intense. Do you have to resist braking?

Funny you ask, because yes, barefoot on concrete during T1. I don't really like running barefoot, but I never feel it during transition. In the moment during a race, I'm oblivious to it.

Yes, I find myself really reluctant to build up speed downhill. I think it's something that comes with practice, and I need to practice more.
