just did my first tri today. seattle escape from the rock sprint triathlon.
was a sprint triathlon, 1/2 mile swim (but one of the bouys moved and so they said it was closer to 3/4 mile), 12 mile bike ride, 2.5 mile run.
i finished. was one of the last people out of the water but passed at least 40 people during the bike and pretty much held my own on the run.
first thing i learned was that next time, i need to practice swimming. i did NOTHING to prepare for the swim, and thus it was pretty horrible. but i figure that DFL is better than DNF, right?
anyways, time to start thinking about next time...
