Somehow, some way, I made it through. The swim was the best part, and I finished faster than I had ever finished. The bike ride, eh. The first half was pretty bad, but once I got into my rhythm (and started interacting more with the women around me!) it was good. And most of the “run” was good, although the last half mile was straight uphill. Ouch. But I finished! I slept most of yesterday afternoon, and am pretty sore today, but overall I don’t feel too bad. I kept getting asked if I will do it again–and I think I will! I would like to train with a group, instead of just by myself, but I think I will! Here are a few pictures.
