My journey to finishing my first Ironman triathlon, and all other races that followed…

My first big race of the year, Kinetic Half, is down in the books! It was a great weekend at Lake Anna State Park, a great venue, a well organized race by the Virginia and Maryland Triathlon Series, and to top it off a highly rewarding performance. Race day started with the alarm going off at 4am to take in a smoothie and PB&J sandwich. I started at the front of the pack and found some open water, in part because many swimmers started the swim towards the first orange buoy, which was out of line, only to then correct course. The best part is that my bike was racked right next to bike exit, which also meant Gabi was right there to cheer me on! The first half of the bike course is hillier, the second half largely flat and with super fast asphalt! All turns were obvious thanks to police, volunteers and road marking. As biking is my weakness, I saw a number of people pass me on the bike. I paced myself well on the bike, and in future training and racing the magic secret will be determining how much harder I can push myself on the bike while still having a strong run. Right around mile 50 I was passed by an athlete in my age group and it created an opportunity for me to have a specific individual to race against and push myself harder. The start of the run is though! Straight uphill and you have to do it three laps! The Kinetic run course was much harder than I anticipated. On the second loop I was running with people who were starting their first loop, so it was hard to compare performance against others.
