I did my first Triathlon of the season today, the Spring Sprint Tri at the Utah Olympic Oval. It was right by my house. I just rode my bike there! Kevin had a scout meeting this morning, so he wasn't able to come. I had no cheerleaders! *sniff*sniff* :( But it was still fun. The weather was pretty darn cold though. I think it was just in the 40's. Good thing the pool was heated! I shot this picture of the sky on the way down to the Oval. Thought it looked pretty cool.....
And here's the transition area before the race. I didn't get any pics of me during the race, since no one was there to take them!
But here I am after I finished! Kevin came after his meeting, but I was already done. Oh well.
I think this is the first year they've done this tri. Not too many racers. And the bike course was HARD. It had SO much UPHILL!! I felt like I was just dragging. I was passed by SO many people on the bike. But the run course was great. I ran along the streets I'm used to running on. I even ran right past my circle! It felt kind of wierd.
