Comments:

Annoying. I would've finished a little farther ahead in the swim if they would've had a better starting system. Allowed the "elite" group (which I should've joined) to start in the water 15-20 yards ahead of where the rest of us were at the start line, yet we all started at the same gun. I came out of the water right next to someone who started in the elite pack,but I obviously traveled more distance.
What would you do differently?:

Start with the elite wave, otherwise the swim felt okay.

Not sure...

Did this well. Easily the best in my AG, one of the best overall.

I have always been an athlete, growing up playing team sports like basketball and soccer. I also ran in a couple of 10K races every year, so I had no reason to worry about running a 5K...right?

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.

A product review of the Louis Garneau Tri Air Triathlon Shoe. After nearly two years of testing, see how this shoe performed. Currently being replaced by the Tri Air 2.

I couldn’t help but feel that the race had beaten me. Perhaps duathlons were more for me? No, I was more determined than ever to succeed. I was determined to get on top of my swimming.

This life of mine is not so different from yours. It has a multitude of similarities. I suffer from uncertainty, I get nervous at the thought of registering and when getting to the starting line.

I am not going to buy a tri-suit before my first tri - I want to make sure I am going to stick with this before I spend a lot of money on it so I want to figure out what will work best.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
