  • 02m 25s / 100 yards

First OWS. There was a lot more bum ping than I had planned on, got kicked 3x but it was ok. did not expect the swim to be so hard, OWS is much harder than the pool! Did the side stroke a lot!
Transition 1
  • 01m 55s

Transition was up hill from the lake. Was not expecting the drunkin legs feeling, just walked to T1. I remembered the important stuff, but forgot the Cliff Block. No big deal did not need food anyway. The racks were really close to the transition exit. Pretty good for my 1st T1. I came in 9th for T1!!

Everyone passed me on the bike, but it was a good plpace to start. Gives me a lot to shoor for next year.
Transition 2
  • 01m 34s

Did ok in t2. did not fall getting off the bike!! Was able to run out of T2, but legs were wobbling....need more bricks. Came in 20th on T2
What would you do differently?:

More bricks!

Post race
Warm down:

Kissing Matt and the boys when I crossed the finish line....I am a triathlete!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Last of being able to shift gears and not expecting how the swim would go.

Event comments:

Nothing to compare it to!
