I completed my first triathlon yesterday and was the overall winner (sprint). It was so satisfying crossing the line knowing I'm officially a triathlete, and winning was a nice bonus. My training group and everyone else said just take it easy and enjoy the race, first time racers never win. Proving them wrong kept me going on the run. Now into the next one. Here are a few shots.

Thank you! I figured just get it out of the way cause I'm going to stick around. My main goal is to compete in an ironman with the ultimate goal of being competitive in one.

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.
