Final Results and Pictures.

Here are the final results from the race yesterday:

600m Swim: 18:36
20k Bike (including both transition times): 48:05
5k Run: 32:08

Total time: 1:38:50

Here are some pics from yesterday for your enjoyment.

Here I am setting up my transition area. Notice the towel over my red bike, I stole the idea from the guy to the right of me. I have no idea why we did that, but since I had no idea what I was doing, it seemed like the right thing to do.


Doesn't this look terrifying. I am in the circle, its hard to see, but i have the red swim cap and I am about to punch the man in the orange swim cap in the head.
This was at the start before I freaked out.


Here I am exiting the swim, happy that I didn't drown. However, I don't look very happy.
In T1. Getting ready for the bike leg of the race.


Running off for the bike section.


Coming in after a good bike ride. The camera couldn't truly capture the fact that I was riding 240 miles per hour at this point.


Here I am finishing up the run. I totally blew by this middle aged woman!


And finally here I am after crossing the finish line. I was so happy, I couldn't believe I just did a triathlon. I felt awesome.

CONGRATS! Looks like fun! Although that swiming part does look quite terrifying... that's a lot of kicking arms and legs all around you! Looks like fun!
Oh, and I love that your bike even has red tires! Very cool! :)

DUDE! CONGRATULATIONS! I loved your step-by-step commentary.

Question: The blue shirt you are wearing in these pictures...is that one of the under armor shirts that we got in Carbondale? If so...that makes me happy.

Way to go, Chris!!
I am SO PROUD of you! I would have died after two minutes!
I can't wait to get HOME so I can SEE the pictures! They must be REALLY offensive, cause the Saudi government is BLOCKING them! Oh, well, 9 more days and I can see you in your spandex!
Love you!
