What I can say about the triathlon this year is.....I finished!
This has been a year of ups and downs and today was not any different. I started by forgetting I had my phone on me...literally and jumped into the pool to warm up on my way back to the transition area to put it in my run belt. My swim cap....hmmm, I seem to have lost that somewhere.
Swim time was actually probably my best...result are not available yet and my stopwatch on my wrist was bumped and stopped.
Bike was going well but tires I think have a slow leak. the air pressure was fine when I started but 1/2 way through, You could see the rubber squatting on both the front and back tires. Galen was so helpful to give 10-15lbs to each tire and OH! it felt like I was riding a new bike. Now this ride route....Wind was from the south and there was a bear of a hill with a long incline going up to the actual hill. At 1 point I was not sure I had enough left in the tank to even walk when I got up it!
Run/walk... It was more walk than run and probably my slowest 5K ever but hey...I finished! Kiana was a volunteer and was medaling/taking timing chips and she was there at the finish line waiting for me!
