I Didn't realize this team was here! So glad to find you!
I did my first tri 3 weeks ago. The Jersey Girl Triathlon - 300 yard ocean swim, 10.5 mile bike and 3 mile run. Not quite a Sprint Triathlon. The day was crazy - very Hugh surf, rain, and heat and humidity I finished - yeah! 1 hour 29 minutes and 35 seconds.
My next stop is the Danskin Sprint Triathlon at Sandy Hook on 9/11/11. although the swim is longer - half mile - at least it's in the bay. I love ocean swimming but not what we dealt with at the Jersey Girl. glad I passed on Sherox this weekend since Hurricane Irene is looming.
My tri story is emotional for me. My triathlete husband died suddenly of a heart attack at age 47 leaving me a 42 year old widow with 2 young girls to raise alone. I never did a tri with him. Wish I had. But I am riding his bike and doing his sport and inspiring my girls to be active.
