Race Report:

My 1st triathlon.

Thanks to all the MMTC members who raced this past Sunday (14 were seeded), especially Melissa and Kristen for: setting a tent and having chairs and vittles as a home base; everyone's support and comraderie throughout the day; making darn sure I remembered to have F-U-N.

I hadn't been in the pool for 30 years. After much soul searching, and equipment shopping, I found TYR corrective lens goggles (-8.0) for $22 at Princeton on May 18th - praise be!! Joined the Columbia Swim Club that same day, signed up for the Tri-to_win, too, on same day and got about the business of getting wet [Editor's note: It's not like I was going to have to dodge big orange buoys in the Tri-to-Win pool, but I 've been wearing glasses since 2nd this is a big hurdle..]

Don't know my times for the S-B-R yet, but I felt good for most of the race and was most pleased with my performance.

WOuld do Tri-to-Win again as it is well organized, lots of volunteers, and a challenging little course.
