Triathlon Accomplished!

I was a little worried about my ugly toe injury, but I was able to do the triathlon today. All I had to do was find a good waterproof bandage to keep the wound from getting infected, and all was good!

It was a very cold morning -- about 53 degrees when we started. The water was absolutely frigid! But, once we got moving, the water felt okay. I was more worried about getting kicked in the head and seeing where I was going in the water!

The bike was okay. I think I was pretty slow there because a lot of people passed me. The one woman who passed me on the right (which is a big no-no), her bike broke down on the course. Talk about karma! And the run, I was hyper by then. I was cheering everyone on... "Way to go, girls! You're doing great!" But truthfully, I'd rather have fun than be a serious competitor, and since I'm not a super-talented athlete, why not have a good time?

I've done two triathlons on back to back weekends. I'll be taking a break now for about 5 weeks, and my next triathlon will be once I'm moved in to Boston!

Nice going, VeganDoc! Did the bandage stay on during the swim? Or was there no swim!?!?

I'm glad the toe injury didn't stop you. When I have raced, I always talk to peeps as well, trying to cheer them on! That's really cool.

I'm happy for you!

Wow! 53 degrees... you're a tough cookie! I also love that you cheer people on during races - a couple of kind words can matter SO much! Congratulations :)
