A good time was had by all!

Despite chilly weather, Spud had a blast doing his triathlon. He led the pack in the 4 year old swim across the pool. He persevered on the bike, despite being really cold. He killed the run and finished strong! He LOVED the running part of it. Though, really, I think his favourite part was getting a number on his arm and getting a medal.

I had the time of my life. I had a strong swim, slightly confusing transitions, a great bike, and a superb run. In fact, remember my attempt to beat the 30 minute mark on a 5k? Back in December, I had a frustrating race, that ended up with "sort of" beating the 30 minute mark, only because the course was short. Today, my run split on the 5k was 27:36, beating that milestone by about 2.5 minutes - at the end of a triathlon.

More to come when I do the full race report! Sadly, pictures might be limited, as we seem to have a corrupt memory card. :( Saved a few. Might be able to get more up.


  1. :) Congratulations to both you and Spud on sucessful first tris
