It was a beautiful cold below freezing morning. I was in my 2nd triathlon I have ever done. My first was in September, 2011.
I must say I am hooked! What a wonderful way to spend a day. Outside running, biking then indoors, swimming. My crew, Bob, drove me to the facility on the request 7:00am check in. Then it seemed we waited forever for the 8:30 start. We won't do that again. I was excited. So excited I forgot to stop my Garmin Forerunner 610 for a more accurate reading on the statistics for the race. Oh well, I am not in the hunt to win. I just really enjoy being in the mix, only as a participant. Triathlons are a means for losing weight and getting healthy for me. The other benefits are stress relieving, (which I really don't have any stress) toning and general better healthy attitude.
I highly recommend them.
