I couldn't be happier with the results I received today, I'm really pleased with my performance at my very FIRST triathlon!
0.5 mi swim, 16 mi bike and 3 mi run results:
Total time: 1:45:11.792
Swim: 16:19.971 (Including the run up the beach and path to transition area, I assume that accounts for my being in wave 3?)
T1: 3:03 (doh! slow- Newbie alert)
T2: 1:15 (sure didn't seem that long)
Well, that's a definite PR :) One of the perks of doing a new distance or type of race is that you get an
automatic PR! I will say my swim time is slower than I'd hoped for, but I'm not sure if it took into
consideration the wave times.. either way, I beat the 3 women who came in 1-3rd place in our age group
in the swim and I'm happy about that. I had a feeling that I'd do really well in the swim, even with NO
27th female overall (out of ??)
4th in 25-29 age group
and 145th overall out of ~265
There's certainly room for improvement in all areas, especially the bike and transitions, but I'm really
thrilled to have a great starting point like this to go from!
