The organizers just sent me a table which gave me my position on each part. My swimming was fast, I was 2nd fastest in my group. And my biking was fast too, I was the 3rd fastest in my group. My run time, which I think of as my best area, was not as good, I was 5th. And my transitions, I was slow: 6th and 5th respectively. I guess I need to practice putting on my shoes!
New Bike! I'm really excited since I finally bought a bike that isn't a bad joke. I bought a new bike which is a modern racing bike. It's almost 10 pounds lighter than my old bike. I didn't got to crazy as in I stayed with aluminum and didn't go with a carbon fiber. But, if I keep at it (and if my company stays solvent), I might get myself a carbon fibre one soon.
My previous bike was one that I had swapped for and it turns out to have been 25 years old. I put toe clips on the old bike and use to do both the biking and the run wearing running shoes.
the results of previous triathalons. I did two two years ago and a few a few years before that. My time this time was actually better than the previous one: 1 hour ten minutes this time versus one hour seventeen minutes on my last one. I have no idea why. This course might have been shorter or the conditions better. I think in both cases, I placed the middle of my group although I have moved up a group since my previous efforts. And by up, I mean that I moved up to the 56-60 age group.
By the way, the pictures from the triathalon last year were taken by my wife's nephew who is a great photographer. Anybody want to go take pictures at the next one?
