Today I’m going to try to share more photos than words, it’s not a promise but a goal.
Race day goals: swim strong, bike stronger, run strongest. Get a PR around 3 hours in Olympic distance triathlon.
In transition. Do I have everything? Tires pumped?
Today I was racing with Emily and Nick. Emily asked for magic braids. She got her Boston qualifying time when I braided her hair that qualifying morning, and she wasn’t expecting to. I braided her hair when she placed 3rd in her first sprint tri. Spoiler alert: I braided her hair the morning of this race and she placed 1st!
Mine and Emily’s bikes racked next to each other, 76 & 77.
Nick suiting up for the start of his wave.
Transition out of swim.
Transition 1: Swim to bike
Start transition from bike to run.
And finish!! Happy with the time I was seeing on the board coming in.
2nd place!! First time I’ve ever placed in a race as an adult.
1st and 2nd place, it was great to chase my best friend. She pushed me to do my best!
Until the next great adventure!!
