  • Comments: Overall a great race for my first triathlon. Well organized, professionally run and a beautiful, fast course. I was secretly hoping to be closer to top of age group, but I knew that was unlikely for my first race. Almost let that undermine my effort after the bad swim, but a good bike run, encouraging other racers in bike and run and finishing fairly comfortably physically gave me the confidence to get psyched for my next race and do more triathlons. I had set a 1:40 goal based on my training times, and that would have put me in top 4-6 in age group based on previous year's times. I beat all my goal times in all 3 sports except for the first transition, and beat the 1:40 with 1:36:30 which would have been 5th the previous year, but was 12th this year. Not sure why that was, unless just faster competitors or conditions this year. Overall had a great time, and felt satisfied with my performance.
