Jeff Stuart, my swim coach swam next to me the whole way. I didn't do great in my first TRI (this was my second) so he said he'd come "support" me. It was great knowing he was there but like Dumbo with the feather, I probably didn't need him for anything more than mental support.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Just figuring out how to do this TRI swim thing :)
Transition 1
  • 02m
Comments:

I can get out of my suit ok now except it gets caught on that timing chip. gggrrr

Comments:

Bike course was 2 laps and I knew it would be kind of hilly going into it so I played it conservative. Dropped my chain twice which frustrated me but what can you do. It must not have really been 12 miles because I don't think I averaged 19mph.
What would you do differently?:

Next time I might be more aggressive on the bike
Transition 2
  • 01m
Comments:

meh. it is what it is :) I used my shock doctor shin splint sleeve so that took extra time to adjust
Run

Comments:

The first hill was STEEP!!! HOLY CRAP. Also, the time includes my T2 because there was no starting mat leaving transition. Odd marks for sure but everyone was in the same boat
What would you do differently?:

learn to run pain free
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked around a bit

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Leg was ok this time - I didn't start limping until it was over. This time it was just overall fitness level and bike mechanicals.

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.
