One thing this tells you is that I was 73rd in the swim, 100th in the bike, and 121st in the run. That means that I am a much better swimmer than I am a biker, and a better biker than a runner. Or, more accurately, more people are better runners than I am than are better bikers or swimmers. Running is a relatively easy sport to do and doesn't require fancy equipment.
On the day of the race, I was pretty disappointed with my bike time. I made such a big deal that I had this new bike and it was going to tear the world up, but I did just about the same as last year. My brake may have been stuck, or maybe I just didn't train enough. It was also a hilly course and I have no hills to train on around here. Anyway, who cares? There's still plenty of summer left and lots of time to ride (in fact, I'm going to go out as soon as I finish this post).
I had to race as a 40-year-old this year, because the USAT rules say that you race as the age you will be on December 31. Bye, bye, 30s, at least for trithlon. As a runner, I still get to be 39 for a while.
