“I have been real busy with class and work, but my first race was two weekends ago The Keuka Lake Triathlon! This was my first solo race where I didn’t have my dad or anyone going too. To start the race, I had a beautiful swim. I felt decent but not great which is okay as long as I’m moving along and no one is passing me. So I came out of the water in fourth (4th) and exited transition in 3rd! I felt great on the start of the bike so I knew it was going to be a wonderful ride! I held my own for most of it! I loved the heck out of my Tifosi sunglasses, I got a few compliments on the run because I changed models to the white and blue mirrored ones! I love them Anyway I came off the bike in 19th place, not too bad and I average almost 20 mph!! Last but not least, the run, I felt okay on the run, I tried a new morning routine to eat and what not and it was working great, but for some reason on the run I just felt extremely full and I couldn’t take a deep breathe. To throw on-top of that, I thought that my legs were just going to give out, but my swim coach taught me when you’re in pain, continuously say “there is no pain” and that is what I did. It helped for a while then I did really start to hurt to where I thought I wasn’t going to make it to the finish, so I kept repeating that phrase and I did make it! I finished in 2:35 and change. I finished 1st/7 in my age group, and 65/267 so all in all it was a great race. I have my next race this weekend, the TriRock Philadelphia triathlon. It should host about 1600!”
