I'm pleased to say that My first tri went pretty well. The results can be seen here; http://www.triath.com/results/results-030615tri-short.asp . I finished 117th. Biking was by far my best event, swimming by far the worst. I was more than a little nervous during the swim, but managed to stay below the panic line. I am really looking forward to the next one in August. Here are some pics...

Kevyn,

Congratulations, I hope that you crossed the finish line with a smile on your face!

Did they mention anything about the Havre De Grace or the Dalgren tri? I want to do one of those, but so far there in no info on the website for registration, and the time is comming soon.

Thanks.

This is copied from an email I received yesterday.

"Havre deGrace- Because of a situation that has developed in that area with another group, we are abandoning this race at the request of the police. This is all we can say at this point." Sorry, haven't heard anything about the other race.

Are you on a e-mail list for triath.com? If so how do I get on?

Boyd, the email I received was to anounce that the results for the Spud tri had been posted. As far as I know this was only sent to participants. A few other anouncments were tacked on the end, including that about the Harve de grace tri. So, to answer your question, I'm not on a triath.com mailing list.

Great Job!

I did my first tri on Memorial Day. Finished 19th out of 33 in my age group (30-34). Results are at: http://www.tritucson.com/RSTres03.htm

My next tri is the Firecracker Triathlon July 6th here in Tucson. It should be a hot one.

Did the first tri on my mountain bike. I just bought a road bike so the next race should be a little quicker.
