Swimming in Triathlons: a contact sport
By trigirl13 on November 17, 2011
I did two sprint triathlons this past summer. This is a recap of the swim leg of the first race that I did with my buddy Ann Marie.
The morning of: we all got up bright and early. After a hearty breakfast we headed downstairs to rack our bikes and warm up (staying at the site of the race is fabulous!) Ann Marie and I suited up and headed to the water. We targeted a pole as our distance marker.
The water was c-c-c-cold but clear and beautiful. We met at the post and then headed back to shore. I looked up for Ann Marie but couldn't find her!
TriGuy keenly observed the whole thing.
I felt I'd had a successful warm-up, so I was in it to win it hopefully (not) finish (last).
Since Ann Marie is waaay younger than me, we were in different waves. She was off first and was a tad nervous.
But, she took off and swam like a champ!
Then it was my turn!
