Race Report:

This was my first time doing Columbia, and I'm pretty sure I enjoyed it. Yeah, I enjoyed it..once the rain stopped. And it was really nice meeting some club members I've only seen online.

I hadn't done a tri since Iron Girl in 2008, so it was almost like starting this sport all over again. I was too busy last year with wedding planning and projects on the house I just bought, so I only did some running and strength work.

Firsts in this race for me -

First wet/rainy race.
First full wetsuit race.
First swim in which I was able to breathe bilaterally and comfortably. Not bad, considering I had only 2 ows since 2008.
First bottle handoff without stopping.
First successful snot rockets on the bike. Well, 6 actually. Gross, yeah, but a real relief for me.

I have been working on my endurance more than anything since the winter, so now it's time to work on my speed.

Next up, Eagleman AquaVelo in 3 weeks!
