I finished my first Triathlon on 6/20/2010. I trained extremely hard for 20 weeks with most of the time spent learning to swim. I trained so hard that the swim and bike were terribly easy. I took it nice and slow during the swim and had way too much fun cruising on my bike. The most challenging part was the run due to the heat and me not properly training for that leg of the race. While I felt a great sense of accomplishment, actually the greatest sense of accomplishment in my life, I did not feel like I really raced at all. I want to swim faster, race on my bike and run faster for the entire race. I signed up for my second Triathlon which is The Nations Triathlon on 9/12/2010. Something tells me that this won't be my last race. I think I was bitten by the bug.
