Beware the Jellyfish

For nine months, I have been training to compete in my first triathlon. This race consists of 1/2 mile open water swim, 14.4 mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run.

The first calamity happened during the swim where a jellyfish hitched a ride on the back of my neck.

The second calamity was when I jumped off my bike to pee and landed myself into a big patch of briars. Smart, indeed. Hence the blood dripping from my legs at the finish.

These annoyances aside, I thought the race went well for the first time for me competing in a race that involved more than running.

Many thanks to my husband and children who crewed for me that day. All of your efforts on my behalf surely did not go unnoticed.

Also, I'm grateful to Team Marathon Bar for believing in me! My gear is so cool.
