Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of training

Event comments:

weather related issues cancelled the swim and it sounds like they made the right decision. They decided they wouldn't be able to watch all participants in the water with 5 foot swells. This worked to my advantage as my swim is very weak.

After doing duathlons for the last couple of years, I decided to go for a triathlon. Starting with an Olympic-distance race perhaps wasn't wise, but it was fun (of a sort).

This past spring I realized a few of us were heading in the wrong direction physically. We were getting together for poker games and kids’ birthdays, but that was it.

I went down to the beach the day before to scout out the course, and it was glorious...the sun was out, the sea was as smooth as glass, and only a hint of a breeze was blowing. “Perfect,” I thought.
