My first ever half-ironman is officially in the books. The day was absolutely awesome, and I loved everything about it. Well, maybe except the fact that the official water temperature on race morning was not in fact 66 degrees, as I mentioned in my last post.
Ready for it?
It was a balmy 55 degrees. Now that’s chilly! Thank goodness for wetsuits.
The official results aren’t posted yet, but according to my watch, I think I finished somewhere around 6 hrs 13 min. I literally had so much fun, I noticed myself physically smiling during parts of the race (not the swim). I will do an official race report later, but for now I am happy to report that I had fun, finished strong, and I am not nearly as sore today as I thought I would be!
