I met Dani and Paul there. Dani finished third in her category. Paul didn't pass me until the biking but I was basically pleased to finish.
I was 12th out of 17th in my chosen category of males, 50-54. However, it was chosen in the sense that I qualify for, and could have entered, as a Over 40 Clydesdale (for those of you not up on the lingo, this means kindof heavy. The cut off is 185 which I sadly easily meet. There are also 200 and 225 Clydesdale categories). As a Clydesdale over 40, my time would have placed me closer to the top! Should I enter as a Clydesdale next time? Or should I just bide my time until next year when, if I could get the same time, I would have also placed second. I got through my transitions fine but am not really in shape for a tri, even a sprint. But, in three weeks (next time out), I intend to be. Watch out.
Here's my results (which showed up in an email when I was still having breakfast afterwards). After analyzing them, it turns out that my biking is slow. My swimming and running (even though I walked a little) were pretty good. And my first transition was slow but by second one (since I don't change shoes) was wicked fast.

23rd ANNUAL SEVEN MILE BRIDGE RUN APRIL 24, 2004 25 223 JOHN EDELSON 46 POMPANO BEACH 54:18 8:00
These aren't all my runs in recent history. I've done Daniella's Run several times but I also run with the kids on that one so my times aren't really my own.
Well, I run with the kids that I can still run with (David is too fast for me to keep up with).
I ran the Miami ING Half Marathon one year with Eddie Walker (2005? 2006?).
And way back when, in the mid 80s, I ran some races in DC and Boston including tagging along on the Boston Marathon in 1986 (3:20 is what I remember).
More recently, there was the Independence Day Triathalon in 2014 when I finally got on a podium.
There's the Key Biscayne Triathanlon of 2012.
And the Mack 2014 July 2014 Tri which triggered a Bucket List Confession.
I was just looking online for my times and I found a site called http://www.athlinks.com/ which has a number of my times from the last decade in one place (update from 2014 Feb 2nd, day of Miami Marathon). Here it is:
