My 4th NYC Triathlon is now in the books. I'm fairly consistent, and with each year comes a tad more slowness, but that's to be expected, I suppose. Given the rain, I was extremely cautious on the bike this year, and could have pushed harder, and I'm sure my first transition might have been a bit smoother had I not wiped out on the "watch out, it's slippery" mat at the end of swim exit (apparently, I was far from the only one). Many thanks to all I saw along the way -- Mom & Stephen, Mike, Hannah, and especially Russ, who biked with me for a good chunk of the run, listening to my bitching and moaning, especially after mile 4.
After a fantastic shower and a solid nap, I met friends and family for a celebration at the 8th Street Wine Cellar -- thanks to those who made it for helping me celebrate! I slept for 10 hours last night, and am now about to head out to Kismet for the remainder of the week for some major rest and recovery.
An extra special thanks to all who donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on my behalf, and congrats to Team D&P!
