The tri is over and what an awesome time it was! Despite the pretty cold morning (around 48 degrees) I was able to function well enough to complete the triathlon. Overall it was a great experience and I can't wait for the next one! Here's my countdown . . . .
10 . . . The number of weeks I trained for this event.
9 . . . The number of people I had to pass during the swim.
8 . . . The number of mosquitos bites acquired at packet pick-up the day before.
7 . . . The number of minutes of running it took to gain feeling and warmth back in my legs after the bike.
6 . . . The number of people in my fan club at the race (thanks to the Hardy's for joining the Orchard's!)
5 . . . The number of times I had to "farmer" blow my nose during the bike (remember, it was COLD!).
4 . . . The number of ladies that finished ahead of me in my division.
3 . . . The number of minutes spent in both transitions combined.
2 . . . The number of mini bagels I ate for breakfast (thank you Days Inn).
1 . . . The number of major lessons learned (never miss your designated swim time).
0 . . . The number of times I stopped to walk during the run!!! Yeah!
