This post is pretty late, but I figured it is still good to post for record keeping. In June, I did the Tri For Fun #1 and it was the first triathlon for a couple of my friends. Well, I must have some great powers of persuasion, because I convinced two more people to start and complete their first tri. After at least two years, my sister Amy Streeter decided to do the great introductory course. In addition, Amy's friend Margo Fahey also signed up for her first tri.
Starting the race, my goal was to finish in an hour or less. Looking at the last race, I thought that a 9 minute improvement was reasonable, despite the fact I spent a significant portion of the month between races in the Caribbean. I'd say my biggest weakness was still my cycling performance, though I was able to improve.
|Split||Distance (mi)||Time (h:mm:ss.ms)||Pace|
|Swim to Bike Transition||1:59|
|Bike to Run Transition||1:35|
Not the blowout improvement I was hoping for, but improvement none-the-less. Plus I beat Amy, Margot and Joe :) I am definitely looking forward to the next tri I'm doing.
