Default Triathlon Report (pics)

I don't suppose anyone remembers me? I was a big blogger here and am still blogging. I'm still running and losing weight very slowly,but I'm in the best shape of my life. Anyway, I completed a triathlon in October and thought I'd share it here since this site was such a big motivator for me to start running. I'll be posting more often and getting ready for more races. Anyway, here's the report from my blog:

What a great report you look awesome at that finish line! I've always wanted to do a triathlon but the river swim scares me...but after reading your report I really should try it... The triathlon they have here there is segment that is called the «Try-a-Tri» I should really check it out... The river is just down the street from my place and I could very easily go practice... You've given me the incentive to try it... Thanks!

Ilene, I just started swimming this past April when I decided to do the tri. I was scared to death. My friend took me to a reservoir locally and we swam in it to practice. Being out in that water takes courage if you're not used to it. But it made me proud that I could.

Be sure to have someone with you when you practice, for safety reasons. I started out with a life jacket in open water just to build my confidence. Good luck!
