Solana Beach Sprint Triathlon, 2011
On July 24, 2011, I woke up before the crack of down to race my first sprint triathlon - Solana Beach! My goals going into the race were simple:
1. Don’t drown during the 400m ocean swim.
2. Don’t fall off the bike during the 9 mile ride.
3. Run as fast as I can during the 5k.
I’m happy to report that I accomplished all those goals!! I didn’t spend too much time training for my first sprint – approx 5 weeks – but it went really well. Below is a little bit about each leg along with my split times.
