Felt pretty good and hit just under my goal pace. HAd some stomach cramps at mile 3-4 that I couldnt drink anything through. The cramps went away and I was able to recover.
I probably could have pushed a little harder but my legs were feeling shot near the end.

I am extremely happy with my performance in this race. Being this is my first triathlon I think I made smart decisions and raced a great race.

I thought this was a very well organized and good event. I had no complaints at all. I will do this race again.

It’s a challenge to push yourself a little harder and a little further. Be proud of every workout that is accomplished and every step-even the baby ones-that you take on this course to the finishline.
