I finished my first triathlon yesterday!
I decided to do one 4 weeks early. Three other friends were doing this one and no friends were doing the one I was planning on. So I wasn't quite as ready as I'd like to be, but I'm sure I probably would have felt the same way in 4 weeks and it wouldn't have been as much fun.
I estimated I'd finish in 1 hour and 45 mins. I guessed pretty good because I actually finished in 1 hour 41 mins! If I train for it again next year, I should be able to beat that time. I'm happy I did it, it was a lot of fun.
Here I am at the transition from swimming to biking. It took me 1:51 mins in that transition. I had a little trouble putting on my shirt and bike vest. ....but safety first! I was probably the only one wearing a reflective bike vest, but the bike was on an open course, meaning there were cars on the road.
The three of us after the race!
Dan and his mom watched Jackson while I did the tri.
