Race Report:

My first triathlon of this millenium :) I ended up with a decent time of 1:56:56 for placing 239/994 and AG 20/57. I am weakest in swim, taking a full 26:15 (38/57) in the lake, but I felt OK and did not run into any difficulties getting thru it. I'll have to spend more time in Rob's swim class to improve. My bike time was OK, nothing smoking at 57:32 (20/57). I still had enough energy for the run, finishing with a decent time 27:27 (17/57). The run-bike-run workouts were very helpful in being able to get thru the run after biking! My transitions were a bit slow but I'm not worried about that at this stage. Overall, I felt fine and was pleased with the results. Looking forward to Olympic distance next. Was glad to have my family and MMTC tent there for support!! It was fun seeing other MMTC members on the course.
