Iron Girl


Andi had her first triathlon this morning at the Iron Girl Las Vegas. It was a sprint distance triathlon, which really only means less than Olympic distance, but it was a long course for a sprint (800m swim, 30k bike, 5k run). Some friends of ours, sisters Julie and Joni also competed. They had great weather and all were pleased with their races.

Andi finished the swim in 19:43 (2:28/100m) then bike in 1:06:07 (avg 16.3mph) and finished with a very strong 5k in 22:47 (avg pace 7:20). She was good through each transition and finished overall 85 out of 643 (25/139 AG) with a total time of 1:56:28! Julie and Joni finished 2:17:30 and 2:28:00 respectively. It was a fun morning. I don't think it will be the last triathlon for any of the girls.

Congratulations to all three of the girls! Andi really looked great in the picture of her crossing the finish line. Her 22:47 5K time is very impressive! Especially considering that she had already swam 800m and biked 18.6 miles. How many girls did she pass on the run? Great job Andi!

Great job, Andi! Aren't triathlons great? Just throwing this out there...maybe it would be fun to do a mixed-team tri someday. I swam competitively in college, you could rock the bike, and Karl could bring us home on foot! I've done one sprint on my own and been part of a team, once, too. Congrats on your great performance!
