swimAt Hamlin Beach Park, I completed my first triathlon of the year in 2 hours and 20 minutes. While I placed a bit better than I did last year, I still have a lot of room to improve when it comes to triathlons.

Once again I was one of the slower swimmers in the race, but I did improve my time by a little over a minute. I would have like to have done better on the bike. This year’s bike course was longer and hillier than last year’s, but with my new bike I still had hoped to improve more than I did. My run was actually a few seconds slower than last year, but this remains the one stage of the triathlon that I am confident in.
