Over the weekend I competed in my first triathlon of the season, Tri In The Buff! The race was a lot of fun, despite the 90+ degree weather. The swim was a little harder than I anticipated. Lake Erie has a bit more of a current and the waves were stronger than I expected. But hey, open water isn't a pool!

I've decided that I do really enjoy triathlon more than just running races. There is a ton more to think about, and plan for, but for me that makes it all the more enjoyable. Plus, way more things to analyze!

Here are the stats:

Overall Place 92 of 162
Gender Place 69 of 103
Age Place 8 of 10
Swim 00:24:34
100s 00:03:10
T1 00:02:35
Bike 00:46:04
MPH 16.28 16.28
T2 01:29
Run 00:35:06
Mile Pace 11:19
Overal Time 1:49:48


Overall the race went well, and it was a good first effort. I have some things to work on, and some mental notes on what I could do differently. Stay tuned for the next race results on the 14th!
