My First Triathlon
By beth_racingrobsons on December 01, 2013
I've been wanting to write this race report for a month now, especially because I don't want to forget a single detail of the day. My first half-Iron distance triathlon (not to mention my first triathlon of any distance) was a magical, wonderful experience. I started to say that it was the best day of my life, but then a few other days popped into my head that are better than any ole race...like the day I married Kyle (or the day he proposed). Or holding my nephew Harrison at the hospital just moments after he entered this world (I love all my other nieces and nephews too, but none of them did I get to meet so quickly!). Or pretty much every Christmas day, celebrating with family near. So yeah, this day was amazing, but it's got nothing on the rest of life.
What I can say about it is that it was the best race ever. Hands down, no contest. My goals going into the race were:
1. Finish each portion of the triathlon within the cutoff.
2. Have fun and never stop smiling.
