I decided to give triathlons a try.  I have had some life changes and my opportunities to train on my bike for 3+ hours are dwindling.  I am also seeing too many injuries in the MTB racing world and that is making me nervous.  I like this old body and want to keep her!

So, I signed up for a swimming course (who actually swims?  We all just "play" in the water and swim 10 feet most of the time right?).  I have learned a lot and will continue to learn how to swim fast and efficiently. I found I LOVE swimming.  I also practiced running about 5 times and then went out and gave it a shot. 

1/2 mile swim, 20 mile ride, 4 mile run.  THANK goodness for the long bike ride.  I did not do well in the swim portion, kicked some good butt on the bike and was average Joe on the run.  All in all, I came i 13th out of 42 so I cannot complain for my first TRI.  I really like the concept of racing myself.  I feel safer and still get to stay in great shape.  I wore my beautiful Velo Bella Jersey and they were all so jealous!
