The Mission Bay Triathlon was a success this morning! One of my favorite parts about racing, is the pre-race excitement in the dark! It’s the best people watching. The moon was really pretty this morning too.
The race went pretty well for me! I took 9 minutes off of my PR! That’s once nice thing about a triathlon, is there are several areas that you can shave off time (the three obvious, swim, bike, run and then transitions). The bike felt good, but it was really windy. I felt a little sluggish on the 5K run, but I still had a great time!
My dad is the one who inspired me to do triathlons! You can tell we have both lost weight, and we’ve both gotten faster! Our pre-race meal was 1/2 WW bagel with peanut butter, with some banana later down the road. Our post-race meal was a little bit more greasy. Neither of us were hungry right after the race (9/1oam) and then when we got hungry we wanted mexican food!
This was taken AFTER I made my fajita. The order was huge, and even my post-triathlon stomach couldn’t take all of it. I did take out all of the veggies though! Here are a couple more fun pictures:
