I know it's been a long time since posting to my personal blog, but I've been busy posting to Free Webinar Wednesdays and Blogging for Bankers. However, I did find time a few weeks ago to compete in my first Olympic-distance triathlon and happy to report that I survived just fine.
I did my triathlon with my buddy Shayne and we picked one in Akron, Ohio. While it was quite a drive to get there, the event was great and we had incredibly nice weather for the day's events.
I ended up placing middle of the pack, which was great for my first triathlon of that distance and took #2 and #1 in my "Clydesdale" category for swim and bike respectively. However, the run got the best of me, making me #7 out of the eight competitors and ended up placing #5 overall for the 200+ lbs. division, under 40.
