10 years of racing and that is the most I've ever been beat up on a swim. I got punched a couple of times and one guy pushed my back so hard that I ended up a foot under water.

I haven't been swimming because of issues with the endless pool, so I was really concerned about redlining and that start did exactly that. I would have been in trouble if I had tried to press on, so I grabbed a kayak for a brief rest. I didn't expect to be remotely in contention for a podium, so I wasn't worried about ti. Turns out that it probably cost me the third spot.

Seriously fast bike split. No idea what the power was, though, because I didn't have the cadence magnet that would have turned the PM on.

Not a bad run considering that I haven't done any speed work since The Rookie.

Bit of a weather delay, but that's not the organizer's fault.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

The triathlon made a lot of sense as I could fit the training around early mornings and other times that wouldn't eat too much into my family time. Things never go completely to plan do they?

I found a sprint, the Lake Las Vegas Triathlon, that was happening four months down the road and signed myself up; much to the surprise of friends and family.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.

A description of my experiences during my first triathlon. It was a great experience. I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been.

If you are calm while everyone around you is losing it, you probably don’t know what the hell is going on.
