Terrible race. I was WAY under trained. My sighting was awful! I probably swam an extra 750 yards. Did I mention my sighting was awful? It was a well organized event though.

I will be back next year to fix this!
What would you do differently?:

Train. My swimming is lacking......

I've rested them for 6 weeks, twice. I've had Active Release Therapy, massages, I'm doing Trigger Point, and stretching. Yet, I'm still having issues and can't get above 3 miles.

I first decided I was going to "do" a triathlon in 1994. It wasn't until 13 years later, in 2007 that I actually did. Why did it take me 13 years to get to the starting line? The swim!
