This weekend I participated in the BTU TRI-O de Mayo triathlon. I managed to finish with a smile on my face after turning in my fastest times on the bike and swim. My time on the run was just a little slower than I had hoped, but I'm very happy with the time. The break down of the time is approximately 9 minutes for the swim (I forgot to start my timer until I was on the bike and didn't get my splits from BTU yet), 52 minutes on the bike, and 32 minutes on the run, with 3 minutes in transition. It seems like I spent a lot longer than that getting my shoes on, but I guess having guys with a good transition routine sprint past with their bikes skews one's reality.

This was a great first triathlon, and I'm looking forward to my next race. Maybe one of these days I'll be one of the old guys you see doing the Iron Man in Hawaii. It's going to take about 30 years of training before I can run a marathon though.
