The triathlon was really fun. I was probably best at the run but I enjoyed the bike the most. The swim was definitely my weakest. I enjoyed the swimming but we scarcely go into the pool. It was really fun and I hope to do it again next year.

The triathlon was pretty fun, and I was definitely ready for the biking part because I bike a lot during the week. The part that was real hard was the swimming because our pool is closed now. I took 11th in my division, but I still tried my hardest.
The swim was really hard; I went to fast on the first lap. Then I just ran out of gas, my goggles filled up with water. The transition was time consuming; it took a while to get my shirt on. The bike was hard on the up-hills, but really easy on the down-hills. Once the bike ended, I didn't know what to do at the transition, the people were already dealing with someone else. So I threw my bike on the ground and ran. I was pretty far behind on the run. I caught up to first though. The kid in first kept getting in front of me; he wouldn't let me pass him. It was annoying. I got ahead of him, but then he took a shortcut around the corner coming into the parking lot, we turned right, and then turned left. When we turned left I got off the road for a split second, just so I could pass him because he was in my way. I technically won but, we both kind of cheated a couple times throughout the race.
