From 278 Pounds to Triathlete--Today was the Day! (A few pics)
Saturday, May 21, 2011
What an exciting day!
I'm proud to say I was so incredibly overprepared for the race today. I finished in great time. My finish picture reads 2:00, but I started as the fourth wave. So my actual finishing time came to 1:48, a full 12 minutes better than what I was expecting! AND I placed third in my age group!! So awesome!
Here are some pics:
Here's me getting out of the water
Here's me transitioning onto the bike (complete with a video camera attached to my helmet! I knew the videographer and he asked if I would mind helmet-camming the course!)
Here's me transitioning into my chi running (and messing with my race belt)
And me crossing the finish line!
Here's me with my training buddy. We both placed third in our age groups! (Luckily we're both on different sides of 30)
And here's me being silly, showing off my marked "guns" and trophy. :-) It was a great day!
