My first triathalon!

Finished my first triathalon yesterday, it was awesome! My chain fell off during my bike ride and I had some challenges not having done any real swimming. Ever. But it was a sweet time in Bend. The tri was called the deschutes dash.

How long? .7 mile swim, 14.5 mile ride, 3 mile run.

I don't think I've ever tried to swim that far. I was on a swim team
between ages 8 - 13. I used google's handy conversion feature to figure out that would be like 11 -
100 meter events back to back, that's a lot of swimming. The ride and run don't sound
too bad. I think I could easily handle all of these things individually,
but putting them together in a tri-athalon would be another story. Way to go man, that's impressive.
