Ha-ha. Everything.

It seemed like everybody was going too slow so not enough motivation created by other competitors.

U-turn faster. Go in the beginning faster, easy to say when you are warm.

10 sec. return back to drop off sunglasses.

Keep my running shoes dry.

What warm-down? I was wet and cold.

Lack of sleep the day before (4 hours). Too cold to be wet, my brain malfunctions.

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

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

Any good race director will go over the triathlon swim course directions many times.

Experts agree, doing a “mock,” triathlon on the course you’re racing can aid you in your training; performance and most of all quell some nervous energy.
