Now I done it, First Tri!
Well actually my 14th tri, but the others were 26-27 years ago! I turn 60 in a couple of weeks and decided instead of having double knee surgeries I'd just train for and do a tri . . . . that's another whole story.
Sunday was the day. Awesome weather and people both in the race and the race crew. Swam the ¼ in 10:24, TI 2:07, Bike 17 / 55:03 (18.5mph), T2 1:48 (forgot to put on race # and had to go back), 5K in 29:11 (9:23 mi). Finished in 1:38:34 and was 72 out of 169 starters. Only 7 were my age or older. Now I just need to decide on the next race. I will probably do a couple of 5K runs in the next couple of months as there are a number close by. Looking at a couple of sprint events in driving distance in late July or early August.
