See that pink swim cap at the very end? That's me swimming in my very first triathlon. It was truly the most amazing day ever!
The swim portion went well, I did the backstroke for about 3/4 of it but I am totally ok with that. I felt confident leaving the pool and a huge sense of accomplishment.
The transition isn't too bad, the race was staggered fairly well so the transition area was pretty quiet.
The bike went really well, there were a few "this is hard" moments on some of the hills and when it started pouring rain but all in all the bike was good.
The run OIY! It took about 2/3 of the run before my legs even felt like they were my own. I didn't expect that lead leg feeling at all. I guess it's common after coming off the bike but the run was a struggle.
Crossing the finish line, one of the best moments ever!
