Anthem Sprint Triathlon

After much training and stress, I completed my first sprint triathlon! I trained most of the summer to get ready... and was feeling pretty good that I might meet my time goal for finishing. But things don't always go as you plan. The race started at around 5, and it was pretty hot... so I ran slower than I wanted to, but that was ok, I still had the biking and the swimming left to catch up. The biking was going really well... until I hit the 11th mile... and my tire went flat. So the last two miles I walked/jogged with my bike. I was pretty tired after that, but I finished the swim. My time was much slower than I wanted, but I finished... and that's what's important. So I plan on redeeming my self in another couple of months when I try again. Hopefully the second go round will end better... then maybe I can quit this crazy sport. I'll keep you all posted.

Congratulations! That is amazing. Sorry about the tire going flat, after all your training that is a total bummer-can't wait to hear about the next one.
