My swim was a debacle. My goggles fogged up and I was swimming blind particularly once I turned around and was going into the sun. I had to keep lifting them up and I always found myself off course. I am slow enough without swimming extra distance. I finally put them on my cap and just dealt with having none on. But it took longer than forever. The good part is I am fairly comfortable in this lake and knew basically the course. Then I ran out and took off my wet suit only to rip it. Yikes. How much of a disaster is that? Do people swim with ripped wet suits? I plan to.

I made it. I actually like this pic that
my friend took.
This is early and they have just put out the first buoy.
Transitions. Yeah, I need some practice there.
The bike felt good. I passed a decent number of people. This was a small race. I took longer than usual but it was fun for sure. But still disappointed with time.
My happy place.
The run. All my runs are slow these days. It could have been worse, it could have been better. I like this run. It's in the shade and not too hilly but near the end you enter the park on a downhill. I have to say I can't wait to do another one. This left me hungry to do better. This tri is repeated 3 times in the summer. I will be away for the July one but hope to do the August one as long as I am here. I am going to start scouring the internet to find a new tri too. I have conflicts with the ones I usually do so am looking for a good July one.
