New York City Triathlon

Today I competed in the New York City Triathlon. The event was great. I thought friends had exaggerated how quick the Hudson River current was but it was shockingly fast and it really helped me out. The race was amazingly well organized. The City of New York and the Tri’s organizers did a great job putting on an amazing event. The logistics that go into things like this are mind blowing. Add to that doing the event in the largest, busiest city in the world and disasters can easily occur. I was amazed at how easy it was to register, pick up my race package, and even get my chip on race morning. By all accounts the race went off without a hitch. Even finishing my run in 90 degree heat in the hills of Central Park (yes, there are many hills in Central Park… many) couldn’t put a damper on the experience… I hope to do it again sometime… my final time was 2:41:13 a personal best for me in an Olympic Distance Tri by over 30 minutes.
