PPP Event

Results are in! I finished the race (Paddle, Pant, Pedal Triathalon) and had a blast. 45 min paddle, 52 min run, and 1 hr 22 min bike ride, for a total time of 3:00:05. That makes an easy goal for next year to finish in under 3 hours. The group was fun, the race was well organized, and the course was excellent. I thought it was a nice balance of the three events; a little heavy on the running for me, but hey, it was put on by a running club. I could improve the run time if I train more in that. I am also sure I could do the other two events faster if I did it again anytime, but during the race I didn't want to push too hard because first priority was to finish and I just didn't know how much it would take to get to the end. All in all not as strenuous as I would have thought but not easy by a long shot. I passed a few, got passed by a few. It was neat to see people on the course; the paddle route turned around twice so you see other people, then as you run you see people on the turnaround and then see the ones ahead of you again as they bike past. This was my first bike race of any kind, but I'm sure was a lot different than a regular bike race since we all were starting at a different time. Today is the day after, and I'm feeling pretty good. Bring it on next year...
