I did my first Tri. WHOOO HOO
It was a sprint. Rumpass in the Bumpass.
The water was 62. Not too bad after that initial gasp or 4. My times were not killer by any means but is was so much fun.
Thanks to my NTP mentor Sandy, who helped me out with advice, I didn't have any problems. I did get major cramps in my calves in the begining of the run but I waddled through it.
One thing I can say is take it easy the day before. I biked the Columbia road course the day before. I paid for it during the tri.

The people at the race were so nice.
My new pic is from the race.

Congrats. So is true what they said ... once you go tri you never go back ? :)

Looks like Jedi Master Sandy steered you right.

I believe the phrase is:

Tri -- Or Tri Not -- There Is No Du

I sense a great disturbance in the Force. I have a bad feeling about this. :)
