malibu triathlon

As many of you know, I did my first triathlon last weekend - the Olympic distance event at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. Things went a lot better than expected and I was able to complete the race in 2:46, which landed me somewhere in the top third. I couldn't have done this without my awesome mum who came all the way from Germany to be there. In case you were there, she was the one loudly yelling instructions (in German of course) across the entire transition area so I wouldn't forget to wear my helmet during the bike ride. Here are some pictures. They are all in black and white. I look tougher that way. Plus, you can't see that my wetsuit is actually pink. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
