Half Moon Bay "Super" Sprint: My first podium!

Last weekend, I did my first triathlon of the season, the Half Moon Bay Super Sprint. I'm not exactly sure why it was called a Super Sprint since it was basically as long as a regular Sprint. Well, the swim was only .33 miles but it was .35 up to the transition area, the bike was 11 miles and the run was the standard 5k.

Anyway...

I don't normally race this early in the season but I have wanted to podium at a triathlon for a while. I've done it in other kinds of races -- running, AquaBike, OWS, and Aquathlon -- but never a triathlon. This race is new and usually cold so I was confident that almost no one would show up in my age group. Of course, this means it was beautiful weather and more people signed up than normal. But I still managed to beat two of the people in my age group for a second place finish! I was so happy.
