Did my first ever triathlon today, and i won the whole thing! i couldnt believe it. no official race times available yet aside from my overall time of 59:03 (it was my goal to be under an hour). the race was a 300 m swim, 15k bike (9.3 miles), and 5k run. it was in an outdoor pool so it was staggered swim start. i was 9th into the water, i came out 9th, managed about a 5:30, which is decent for me, although very average in the grand scheme of things. passed a few people on the bike, but mostly just maintained. was about 5 minutes down off the bike. since i am a runner, the run is where i blew everyone's doors off. I ran the 5k in 18:11, which i was super happy with after an extended effort on the bike and in the pool. that time was about 3 min faster than anyone else on the run and gained at least the 5 min deficit on the leader.

i didnt cross the finish line first, so heading to the awards ceremony, itw as anyones race. we had to wait for them to calculate the times and remove the stagger (small town race so this took a while). after i didnt get an age group medal i knew something was up, then they announced the overall winners and they said my name. it was super exciting! i won a massive trophy that took up almost the entrie back seat of the car. I was just wanting to finish strong and have fun at my first triathlon and ended up winning the whole thing!!! furthermore, i think i may have a new passion, tri's are addicting and i think i will be doing many more to come.
