My First Tri...Success

In August 2010 I did my first tri.  It was a mini triathlon in Champaign, IL (Champaign Mini Tri).  400 yard swim, 6 mile bike ride, and 2 mile run. 

This was the perfect race for me to get my feet wet in this sport they call triathlons.  It was close to home, swim and run distances were short, and had plenty of time to train.

I finished with a time of 41:17 placing me 23rd overal and 3rd in my age group. 

I lost a little time in the run portion due to my calves cramping up during the first 1/2 mile of the 2 mile run.  Nonetheless, I am very pleased with how my first triathlon went.  I am officially addicted.
