|All set up in transition area and ready to go!|
Here are some of the highlights:
Lots of cheering on among participants. You don't get that so much in the coed tri's.
Running into old friends (like Jenny Eckton, who blogs here) and meeting new ones. I ran nearly the entire 3.1 miles with a 13-year-old girl named Tilda. She was really sweet and I also had one of my better 5K times as a result. Yay for youth!
|Finally met one of the rock star organizers of Triathamom in person, Aly Brooks.|
|Jenny Eckton and me. We ate a lot of watermelon and other tasty things after the race.|
I didn't finish dead last. After a year off, I wasn't expecting much. But, out of 69 participants in my age group, I finished 19th.
