Ed Villalobos and I went down again for this fun triathlon and 5K. We still have not learned our lesson about getting here early and lining up for the triathlon early.
The ones who get into the deep end of the wave pool first do not have to wait as long in the lines to go down the waterslides as the ones who start later (even if you are a slower swimmer, you will still be towards the front).
After running (swimming and watersliding) the 2 miles in 22:30 (and not even figuring in the top ten in my age group), I fell apart in the 5K as well and ran 23:57.
Maybe it is just an indication that 5K isn’t really my distance, and this is my 3rd 5K this month (amongst others).
