My first Triathlon: 275 Meter Swim, 13.5 mile bike, 3.3 mile run

I had it on my to do list, but didn't think it would be this year. I had a friend ask me to join her and so I did. It was amazing. Some points of the race were hard. Like running up a hill right after you just biked 13.5 miles, AND I made the mistake of getting into the water before the race, I already had anxiety about the swim, so when I got in to try it out and realized how fast the current was going, and I have to swim it in just a few minutes, totally freaked me out. They announced that anyone who isn't a strong swimmer might want to just do the bike/run, They shortened the swim because it was going to fast, but I didn't back out, I thought I was going to faint, all the blood rushed down to my feet and I just did it anyway. It was over coming my fears and accomplishing this huge goal of mine, I was pleased with my time of 1 hour 40 min. Of course now I want to go and beat my time. Thanks Girls, it was so much fun can't wait to do another one with y'all!!
