Two sprint triathlons and two first place finishes! There was a lot of competition out there and after looking at the official results we got 1st place in the 120+ division but 2nd place overall the relays. Yes the older guys can still get it done! We have the Mission Bay Sprint Triathlon coming up in October to defend our 1st place overall finish there. I swam a 7:42 and Chris cycled a 28 minute ride while Jeff powered through a 21 minute 5K. Our total time was 1:00:29. It’s always good to get a podium finish but this race was a whole lot more to me than just getting first.
.There were so many first time triathletes there that I see from Thursdays BOWS group and it was awesome to see them getting out there and finishing their first ever triathlon. As I found each of them I was slowly giving words of wisdom from my experience and knowledge that I have learned from other triathletes as well. It’s not always about winning first it’s about the reward of knowing that you helped someone overcome their obstacles to reach their finish line and accomplish something that they might not have been able to otherwise.
