Race my first Tri yesterday...with the flu

So I have been getting ready for my first race when couple days before I started feeling bad. I chalked it up to nerves and just took it easy. Saturday comes and I am hurting bad. Every joint is killing me and again I chalk it and the shivering all night to nerves . I get home that afternoon after racing and just wipe out. I am shivering and hurting. Take my temp and I am 102.8.

But even with being sick I am so proud of my self for pushing on and doing it. I know know that I can do anything I set my mind to.
