TRI - Ready, Set, Go!

get set, go!

The one in the back of the pack in red is me. I was so nervous! The swim was a beach start. It was delayed because of the fog. It was 56 degrees outside, and the water was 68 degrees. I was freezing all morning until I was in the water, and then I was thinking about many other things, such as the arms and legs that were hitting me, and the mouthfuls of lake water I was ingesting, that I forgot the cold. I panicked slightly (well, more than slightly :). I had to pull back and tread water until my group pulled ahead, and then I begin to swim. I really didn't find my rhythm until the second turn.
