    Awesome job! Biking is my worst leg too, I just can’t get motivated to train for it like I can with swimming and running. You did wonderful though, congrats!

    Sounds like your body remembered how to race a tri even though you were out of practice, if that makes sense. Good job today!

    Congratulations! Looks like you had an awesome time!

    My husband is training for his first sprint Tri in a few weeks. I shared this post with him–he loved it! He said you had a lot of good insight into transitions (minus the whole pony tail thing!). I don’t know that I will ever do a Tri, but they look like tons of fun!

    Great job Meghann!

    My brother and SIL who live near Tampa go to Crystal River often to visit my SIL’s sister!

    Great job!
    By the way, I hate when they give me a large race shirt too! So I use it as a nightwear in summer.

    Hahah my transition DON’T was: DO NOT REMOVE YOUR TIMING CHIP BETWEEN THE SWIM AND THE BIKE. Duh.

    Congrats! After doing a tri Tri about a month ago I have a whole new appreciation for anyone that does Triathlons, they are tough!

    That looked like so much fun!! I wish I wasn’t so scared about drowning to compete in one of these. I did a “Tri” (5k, swim, and finished with surfboard paddle) for the first time last year in the Never quit race that had me swimming in the ocean and I think I’m still traumatized lol. Great job on the run!! and it’s cool to see that you’re gaining confidence in the bike and swim portions πŸ™‚

    Way to go! The nice thing about having lots of room for improvement is that it almost garauntees that your next race will be even better.*

    I have found that if I out my hair up in two side braids, it works best and holds everything mostly, into place. And wearing a hat

    Awesome job with the triathalon! It looks like a lot of fun. except maybe the bike part… that`s what would really deter me from ever signing up for one.

    Hey meghan,

    What kind of bike do you use? Do you like it?? I really want to start doing tri’s but I don’t have a bike! Any suggestions on what to shop for??

      I have a Redline road bike. It’s a very cheap bike that someone built in their garage (he ordered the pieces online and assembled it himself). I’m actually in the market for a new bike and am going through my coach. The truth is I know nothing about bikes, so I found someone who did and am just taking his word. I’m sorry I’m not more help. πŸ™

    Awesome work, Meghann! You look so strong in these pics. I’m still trying to convince myself to do an open water swim tri. Someday…

    Congrats on a great first race of the season! And Crystal River is one of my most favorite places in the country – I love it there! (we have a home in Hudson!).
    And great tips on transitions too – my first race of the reason is Saturday and I feel like i’ve forgotten all of my tricks from last year!
