I finished my 4th triathlon this morning. I enjoyed it very much. It was surprising to me that I struggled during the bike ride. That is traditionally my strongest sport. At one point during the bike ride, I looked at my tires to see if they were flat. I felt like I was riding through quicksand. I don't think my time was too bad, but it isn't posted yet. I felt great during the swim and it isn't even too much of an exaggeration to say I felt pretty decent during my "run". I think my transition times were not good. When I got off the bike, I really felt beat up.
I enjoyed sharing the bike rack with some wonderful women - I think I like being over 55. I also really enjoyed my new clothes. I felt great in them. Several women commented on my "cute skirt". It really is cute.
I also concentrated on looking appropriately stern during the bike ride so that there won't be any pictures of me looking like a smiling nut! I did laugh during the run and I think a photographer might have caught that.
So, I don't know much except I am done, and I had a great time. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive.
