Polar Bear Triathlon, Shelbyville Series, Race #1

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.
