It was F U N ! I definitely didn't set any land speed records, but I managed to surprise myself in the swim with a 1:40 pace - faster than my expected 2:00 ish. The bike was hilly and so was the run. I went into the race with two goals: 1. to finish and 2. to run the entire way. Mission accomplished!

I had a moment on the bike where I was thinking...hmmm, I could probably push harder, but I don't know how much harder, because I still have to run. I still need to work out that threshold on the bike. When I finished (and the day after) I didn't feel worked or exhausted or sore.

I'd like to get one more sprint under my belt and tackle an olympic before the end of the summer, and maybe...just maybe Timberman in August.

way to go ! good job!!

Deciding on an Ironman as my first venture into triathlon was greeted with incredulity and astonishment combined with a hint of, "well, you're full of yourself aren't you?" and, "a bit ambitious?"

I never imagined that 350 yards broken down into 7 REALLY long lanes would be so big! I gasped out loud and told Grady that maybe I had underestimated the swim.
