The winds were awful but we pushed through it. Rachael was first out of the water among us, but had a crappy mountain bike so she had the hardest time on the bike. We stayed with her, giving her some blockage from the wind on the way back into town. She was also huffing and puffing on the run. I was a little surprised. She really felt awful, but hasn't done any training for it, either.
I knew the BRick would be bad so I just kept telling myself s.l.o.w. I'm sure we started out too fast, but I felt awesome and just wanted to keep going! We decided we weren't out for medals or any kind of finish so we all just stayed together, motivating each other along the way.
The swim was about 15 min, the bike was about 17 min, and the run was about 8 min. Not bad for first-timers who can't swim! We are definitely runners! Can't wait for the next one. We'll be better yet!
