I thought I'd share a few pics of my very first triathlon. It was a week ago at the Lake Las Vegas Resort. The water was a very COLD 63 degrees or so, but the outside temps were nice...just a bit windy. I finished the half mile swim, 12.5 mile bike, and 5k triathlon in 1:39, which is a middle ranking in my age group and overall. It was a blast (after I got over the cold water) and I would love to do it again. I was so tired afterward and I had a good afternoon nap. I have been on two short 1 1/2 mile runs this week and I can definitely feel the effects. I wasn't really too sore afterward, but my legs have been weaker this week for sure!

Oh, and since it was the first triathlon sponsored by AFLAC and IRON GIRL at the resort, it was taped and will air (on NBC or one of its affiliates) on July 26th.

So, here are a few pics that the race photographers took and emailed me. In one I am getting out a tissue because I got a cold the week before the event and had to race with nasal issues! THank heaven for pockets!
