Results are in from the Pirate Triathlon and I'm really surprised I did so well. The modified/shortened swim really helped but I figured my lack of training over the past 2-3 months would catch up to me by the end and I'd fall apart late.
The mass swim start combined with the modified course and the fact that I was able to keep up with the pack (for the most part) made for a rough swim. I nailed the bike (I think). I still don't have a computer to know my pace, but it felt fast and I was doing a fair amount of passing. Had a decent run... got passed by a 13 year old very early who made me (and many others) look silly. Finished strong and somewhere in the top 10% overall!
All in all, another great experience in my hometown. This race has grown in numbers almost every year since its inception way back in 1994. Soon it will be May and time to register again.
