Well, I did it! I finished my first triathlon! I'm not sure that I will do it again, but it was a great experience! I did think I might die during the swim - it didn't help that is was only 60 degrees in August in Missouri. At one point as I see the buoy off in the distance, I contemplated flagging down one of the canoes. I convinced myself that I probably wasn't going to drown and I should be tired - I mean, hello, I'm in a race!! I did flip over to my back a couple of time - mostly to make sure I wasn't the very last swimmer (our heat was the last to enter the water - I was convinced I would be the VERY last swimmer out of the water and everyone would be staring at me. I even thought someone might announce over the loud speaker that I was the very last swimmer. Ha!). Thankfully, there were a number of people behind me.
