I did it! I finished my first Sprint Triathlon!
Was very difficult! I didn't train as much as I needed to or would have liked. But I did it!
I came out of the water feeling strong. I even passed a few people from the wave before me. They pulled two guys out of the water that couldn't finish and that helped spur me on!
Bike was the most difficult part as I predicted! Rain and wind was definitely a factor. It rained quite a bit on the bike portion making me even more nervous of falling. There were times I wanted to quit but just couldn't do it! Kept envisioning that finish line!
The run- was half a trail run which by this time was mud. I didn't get to run much of that as I was very tired and scared of hurting myself. I ran when I could and walked when I needed to.
Great feeling! If I can do it anyone can!
