Jano gets 1st Women 50-54
Not much drama to tell, it was great weather for a swede, cool and cloudy and fairly still winds. My race number was 911 which seemed ominmous..
The swim was great, the first wave was over age 50 men and women, second wave the 39 and under men and the 2 more intermediate (Olympic distance) waves. It was nice to start first so I did not have to wait! I had borrowed a long sleeve wetsuit which was great!
I was second woman out of water in first wave (after Susan K. M.) and the bike was nice but had to watch a million guys go by me by mile 4, but hung in there respectably.
The run was flat and nice it went around an island trail and road. Two laps which is kind of a drag but I did better knowing it this year.
Husband Hans there was great to cheer me on and took great pics. The great part was raising over 500.00 dollars for the Mary M. Gooley blood disorder center. Sweet. Thanks to those who contributed.
