My first sprint Tri:<br>
Run 5K-23.27 61/1303<br>
Bike 11 miles 35.11 203/1303<br>
Swim .5 mile 14.40 1051/1303 (yes-I am that bad)<br>
Overall 1.19 210/1303<br><br>
OMG-Swimming in the OW is so hard! That being said the tri was a blast. I met some really great people-including another Kickrunner-Beaker! My family was not able to come watch and it was so nice to have someone there cheering for me. Thanks!<br>
Danskin is a non-competitive sprint tri held all over the nation (for women only) to support breast cancer awareness and funding for breast cancer research. It is a great experience for 1st timers.<br>
The most amazing thing about the day was watching the wave that consisted of breast cancer survivors. These women are amazing. Everytime I saw someone with a survivor's shirt I could feel the tears coming and a lump in my throat. Having a mother currently fighting this disease made this day very important to me. I hightly reccomend it to anyone looking to support the cause or just for a first time tri experience.<br>
Now I want to run 26.2 with Donna, 1st Breast Cancer Marathon, in Jacksonville in Feb. Who's in?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Great job for a great cause.<br><br>
You keep breaking down barriers -- always a good feeling. What's next? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

<b>kruss</b> - way to kick some butt at an awesome event (the power and inspiration you got from the survivors must've been incredibly moving.) And you got to meet <b>Beaker</b>, a pleasure that I haven't had yet but am looking forward to a lot.<br><br>
And yeah, open water swimming's a PITA, ain't it? Don't worry about feeling slow - at the end of my swim leg, the studettes of the female 20-29 year olds who were released 5 minutes after my wave were stroking past slowpokes like me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Congrats again!

Fantastic job Kruss. I'm always amazed by triathletes. I'm barely good enough to compete in one sport so I can't imagine doing three.<br><br>
Good luck with your marathon.

Way to go! Nice job on your first tri ... you're just full of firsts this month, aren't you?<br><br>
Isn't it the most amazing and humbling feeling to be surrounded by all of that emotion and support?

Thanks everyone<br>
Meri-No I wasn't in the Schyullkill but I'm pretty sure the NJ bay isn't much better. I tried really hard not to think about what could possibly be in the water!

Nicely done!<br><br>
I know when I've run the Susan Komen Race for the Cure, I always get choked up, but inspired, by the survivors.
