My first triathlon!!!  My first open water swim in the first wetsuit i have ever donned.  I was so glad to have it – Lake Anna was a brisk 62° F.  Our friend, Jeff, was one of the four brave souls (of 500+ people) who did not wear one. Even though the water was a little murky, you could still see scads of fish swimming about 10 Ft below the surface.  I had not practiced the transition from swimming to biking before, so that was pretty slow.  my feet and arms were slightly numbed by the water and not entirely cooperative.  The bike was nice and FLAT.  REALLY gentle rolling hills.  the run definitely felt awkward at first, but i warmed up as i went along.  5 K felt pretty short and by the end of it i was finally feeling loosened up.

That’s a great picture of you in the wetsuit, even without feet…
