jumped in the water and swam for a little bit then treaded water waiting for the horn to blow.

Great bike and decent run, as far as I'm concerned. I'm glad i was in the 5th wave so I didn't have to wait around as long as you. If it was a hot day, I think that would be a real concern for a race like this.

After doing duathlons for the last couple of years, I decided to go for a triathlon. Starting with an Olympic-distance race perhaps wasn't wise, but it was fun (of a sort).

For most age-group triathletes, getting the most out of there time for quality workouts can be daunting. Think outside the triangle to get a little more.

The start of the race I had the jitters. I was watching the other age groups start as they seeded the swim with over 1000 participants.
