My Funniest Moment in a Triathlon
During my first Triathlon, I had no idea what to expect (this was before I found TriathaNewbie) and made every mistake in the book. I think that the funniest moment was after being very overwhelmed by the swimming, swim transitioning and biking, I couldn’t find my spot where I had to put my bike back and started to panic. I finally found it but was frantic because I lost a lot of time. I hooked my bike in and ran about 150 yards from my bike spot to the Run start. I got about 1 minute into my run when I noticed people were looking at me funny. A race organizer yells from the sideline, “Hey, you still have your helmet on!” I laughed my way all the way back to my bike spot, set it down and headed out on my run without my helmet. The nice thing was that it selttled me down and I was able to enjoy the rest of my race…and I did finish in the top half — yeay!!!!
