Columbia Tri Results from 2007

In preparation for this year's IronGirl Triathlon I have refreshed my memory about how poorly I performed last year. I was shocked to find out it took me nearly 15 minutes in transition 1 (from swim to bike). Olympic quality athletes could be 1/2 way through any one of the sports in the time it took me to clean my feet. Clearly I am lucky feet cleaning is not an essential part to my typical life because I really stink at it! My husband very politely informed me that based on this I am in the lowest 99th percentile of transition times...gotta love him and his statistics!

Here is a summary of my stats from last year (on a positive note: I think based on my 2007 performance I have set the bar at a fairly achievable level, right?):

OverallFinish .... AgePlace ......... FinishTime
1641/1702 ......... 348/359 ......... 3:03:30.25

Jamie,

Thank you!

And good luck to you at Lean Horse 100 this weekend (I definitely picked the easier event as even if I take advantage of the maximum time limit I am finishing on the same day as when I started:-)
