Post race
Warm down:

Wait, wait, wait for race results. It took 3D 1.5 hours to post group results. I wish I was making this up but I hung on thinking I may been on the AG podium.

Event comments:

Props to 3D for giving out some good swag post-race.

And the bad-> they started breaking down the corral & everything else before the race was over + no security on the corral (I rode out without passing any 3D employee or volunteer).

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.

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!

It’s a challenge to push yourself a little harder and a little further. Be proud of every workout that is accomplished and every step-even the baby ones-that you take on this course to the finishline.
