1st time to do this race. We were worried about the weather. Woke up to rain and lightning. The weather turned out to be just fine!!!
I was really focused on the swim because we have been taking lessons. I felt good and was ready to race!!! I warmed up w/ a couple 100 meters in the pool and was relaxed, but still nervous if that makes any sence.
I was 113 in the water and was focusing on not panicking and/or blowing up in the water. Once I got thru the swim I felt that is was a good swim (for me) and I made it to transition and was on the bike. I felt really good! Made it thru the 2 loops and had a pretty good run. We waited for the results and decided I was 2nd.
As they were announcing the winners, 3rd (not me) 2nd (not me again) we thought, well, I guess I got bumped by a really fast age grouper at the end...........then they announnced my name! YAY! 1st in AG!!! That was really cool. I know actually I was 2nd, but they pulled out the overall female who happened to be in my AG. I"LL TAKE IT!!!!!! I will get her next time/:)
