I completed my first triathlon this weekend! I raced in Sunday’s Wildflower Olympic Distance Triathlon and placed 85th out of 224 in my age group. I was very happy with my performance and met or exceeded all my goals for the race.
It was an awesome experience all the way around. The environment is fun and festive with live music and food and race equipment vendors, all the athletes and volunteers are super supportive of each other, and the rush of finally getting to the finish line was indescribable. I’m hooked, for sure.
