Completed my first Tri (w/ pics). . .js5280

Completed my first tri yesterday (Pueblo, CO Ordinary Mortals Tri), had a blast, and stomped my predicted finish time :-) It was a sprint distance, 525m/12M/5K. I was thinking about 1:25 but came in just a little over 1:17 (11:42, 39:31, 25:57, 1:17:10), 14th in a competitve 30-34 age group. I was particulary surprised by the swim and run times. I spent the winter swimming and running to prepare but haven't done either for a while. I was focusing on cycling events for the past couple months and just got back from a 3 week long mt. biking trip. I've signed up for the Xterra (at Keystone) at the end of July and plan to do a lot more specific training plus work on open/cold water swims. Definately going to be a challenge and I'll just be happy to finish this one.

Anyways, got a few photos (all other people) from yesterday I thought I'd share w/ the group. . .
