Time trial start so folks were evenly spaced. set a good steady pace to begin with and passed several people early.
What would you do differently?:

nothing. this was probably my best open water swim in a race. the focus on my pool swims appears to be paying off

roads were wet so had to take it easy on turns and on a couple of down hill sections. i probably could have gone faster but wanted to save my legs some. in the past i have over-pushed the bike and this has cost me on the run.. this time i made sure i left some in the tank for the run and it seems to have paid off

This is a PR for a 5K!!!!! so very pleased. i went out at a pace i thought i could maintain for 5K and all of my mile splits were almost identical. Very pleased that i could perform faster than previously and all my half iron training appears to be paying off!
What would you do differently?:

nothing....this was a PR

I'm doing the 22 week sprint tri program and the 2 mile bike ride it starts with is not very challenging. I see this as a opportunity to train the right way and challenge myself. Any ideas?

This past spring I realized a few of us were heading in the wrong direction physically. We were getting together for poker games and kids’ birthdays, but that was it.

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

Already a cyclist and not a bad swimmer, I figured all I had to do was build up to running a few miles and I’d be ready to go. The challenge invigorated me, and I ran out to buy new running shoes.

From couch potato to a tri in 8 weeks. It was the most fun I've had in a long time. The race organizers had it down and there were no problems at all. This was the perfect first tri, in my opinion.
