Division place: 13/41 (68th percentile) (Goal: 51st percentile)

Lows: The nerves waiting for the race to start (I did NOT train enough.); the long swim (although, looking at the rank lets me know that perhaps the conditions were part of it); the wind, the hear on th run (although, since it wasn’t my first time at this rodeo, I was mentally ready for it and didn’t stop once.)

Highs: Surviving on no training, biking much faster than I ever have (17.1MPH!), getting closer to my fantasy 30-minute 5K than ever before, my newest superfan.

Beer is for Finishers
