I'm officially a triathlete. The race was awesome.
Official time: 3:03:09
Rank: 5/?? (Newbie division)
.9mile swim: 29:XX (per James' yelling as I came up the beach)
Bike 1:30:35 (16mph)
Run: 57:12 (6.35miles total, 9:00min/mi average)
Swim was easy and so nice. Didn't get kicked once!
Took it relatively easy on the bike, a few hard hills but took advantage of the downhills and made some time back.
Run basically sucked. I don't think I had gone too hard on the first two legs but it was hot as hell, hillier than advertised (with virtually no flat sections), and the roads were a mess with potholes and weirdly sloping cement, gravel, etc. I however did not walk once.
