215. Compete in a triathlon… kinda

Cait, who’s on the UMD Triathlon team, helped me attempt this one. Unfortunately, I underestimated the difficulty of this challenge and didn’t train hard enough. About halfway through the swim, I pulled my hamstring and was unable to finish. Pretty soft, I know, but I’m not going to cross this one off cause I’ll be back for another attempt next year (Timmy might give it a go as well). From the small part that I was able to complete, it was a lot of fun.  My favorite part was that I had a 20 minute talk with a random person I met, who let me use his charger, after I had opted out of the competition. Talking to strangers and meeting new people is always a plus so even though I wasn’t able to cross this one off, I’d still give this experience a 7/10. Also congrats to Cait for finishing 17th in her heat (after running a 10k the previous day).
