I completed my first triathlon (Sprint distance - 1/4 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 3.1 mile run), and came in 3rd place in my age group!! :)
Finished in 1:27:44, which was better than I aimed for (wanted to finish in about 90 minutes), so I was very pleased with the results.
I also PR'd on my 5K pace, which was pretty amazing since I was definitely getting tired when I started the run.
But I trained really hard for this race, and I think it paid off. I have my 2nd one on Sunday, which is a little shorter - 1/4 mile swim, 9 mile bike, 2 mile run. Makes me wonder why they don't have a standard sprint distance?? Anyhow, should be a fun race. Hopefully the heat waits until we're done before hitting 90 degrees... supposed to be hot here in GA!
