2hrs 48mins 17 seconds
Had a great race. It went as smooth as could be. The swim as expected was my strongest, and I got out of the water among the top of my age group. I had a ball on the cycling, the infamous Lynch hill didn't seem too bad. All the training definitely paid off there, I cruised up the hills. The run was as brutal as I had been led to expect, but I got the 10k done in 50 minutes. I am really happy with the time, 12 minutes inside my aim of 3hrs. Everyone I talked to told me it was a good result, for a first triathlon, given the difficulty of the course. I am thrilled skinny, (or at least swimmed, biked and ran skinny). More later when I recover. Thanks to all for your best wishes. I will be doing this again!
