Danskin Tri 2008

This years Danskin Tri can be summed up in two words: Kick Ass! I felt good going into the swim, confident and relaxed. The fact that the last few days have been in the upper 80's low 90's also made the swim much more enjoyable as the water temp was lovely for an early morning swim. However, knowing there were several hundred women set to swim behind me makes one swim rather quickly. In fact, I did several things rather quickly this morning:
  • Swim: 22:03
  • 1st Transition: 5:52 (not so good but we were .13 miles away from the main entrance with our bikes in the way back!)
  • Bike: 51:55
  • 2nd Transition: 2:08 (much better!)
  • Run: 34:46
  • Total Time: 1 hour 56 min - my best time ever and four minutes off of last years tri!
I have to say I'm very proud of myself and Darcy (2 hours) and Mara (kick ass 1:37!) I had said earlier that this was going to be my third and last tri, now, um, I thinking I could come back for a fourth. However, this will be my last one on my extremely heavy mountain bike - I'm so getting a road bike!
Rebecca was there with her camera to capture all of the moments! Here are some of her great pics!

Congrats! That is great. I bet if you get a road bike you'll knock a ton of time off. Didn't Mara say she had a 15 minute difference when she switched bikes?
