Last year, IronGirl was my first triathlon, so it was great to return to my "home course" with some experience and a lot more MMTC friends! As always, CTA put on a great race and I enjoyed every minute of it.
We were so cold after waiting three hours for our wave to start that it was a relief to get in the water. My swim felt slow, but I just kept kept swimming and eventually saw the white tent. Coming out of the water, I finally remembered to take off my cap and goggles as I was running to T1!
Apparently, I'm not bad at transitions! If only that helped more ... :)
Time: 1:08:35 at 15.3 mph
The bike was a little shaky at the start. It was drizzling, which made me hesitant starting out. With a new bike and a new setup, I was more cautious than normal.
