I signed up for this triathlon kind of last minute thinking I would finally complete my first open water swim tri. The swim was scheduled for the Oquirrh Lake in Daybreak. If you are from Utah, I'm sure you've heard that there were 3 cases of roundworm that are linked to the lake. This information was released the Wednesday before the tri, what a close call! So what was supposed to be a 750 meter open water swim turned into a 75 meter swim in the clubhouse pool, and then a mile run to transition. All in all, it was the perfect day for a race, and tons of fun. I guess I'll figure the open water swim thing out next year.....
Here are some photos from after the race:
This is Lee (a friend of Sarah's), and Sarah, who I owe all my weight loss and accomplishments too, and me
I love going to races, and since I'll talk to anyone who listens, sometimes I end up making new friends!
This is me and Tatum. A true inspiration, it was her first tri AND she's lost 90 pounds!! She is amazing!
This is Tatum, me, and Joe. We all met before the race waiting to get on the bus that would take us to the pool. We started the race around the same time, and finished close together! We are hoping to meet up for another tri and a 5k in November.
