That was a tough swim. I was surprised when my wife told me that people had dropped out but it is understandable. I am glad I went to the practice on Friday. I think it really helped, especially mentally. QueenZipp, I hope I didn't grab you Surprised. A friend an I were joking that when the women started passing us on the swim we would just hold on and get a free ride. Unfortunately they passed me so quickly there was no chance to even draft.
I was having a good race until the run. My foot hit a root and I twisted my ankle. I was able to limp along for awhile until the pain and weakness subside. I even sprinted at the end because someone came up fast and was trying to pass me.

Bib# 153 - I'll be wearing my RTC top and black shorts like my picture. I would say look for the balding ,40ish guy but there are too many of us

Have a great race everyone.

Congratulations to all who braved the currents in the river.  That was one tough swim.  I kept tangling up with a breast stroker who messed me up big time.  Lots of a$$ grabbing.....Proud to have completed that swim though, don't care about the time.



the breaststrokers were KILLING me!!  you can't get around that!  gahhhh!!!!

Was I laying on the ground? If not, I was the one with dirt and his back from laying down on the trail. The fall was partially my fault because I left my sunglasses on and it was so dark in the woods I probably couldn't see clearly.
So how was your first tri?

Here are a couple of pictures I took during the race.  Not great as they were taken on my iPhone.

Deer in the woods.  I was walking the trail near the turn around.  You were swimming while I saw them.
