Egg Hunt Race
On Saturday, April 23 I competed in my fifth triathlon of the year. The Egg Hunt Triathlon took place at CB Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, Florida and was race number 2 of 5 of the Broward Championship Race Series put on by Multirace.com. The race could be done as either a sprint distance duathlon or sprint distance triathlon. I participated in the duathlon the past two years, but this was the first time I competed in the triathlon.
The swim is my weakest of the three sports of triathlon. Until January 3 of this year, I never really went in the water. I’ve lived in SE Florida for around 20 years but an extreme water phobia has kept me on land. But I have a goal of doing an Ironman distance triathlon before I turn 50, so I am trying to get over my swim phobia and learn how to swim.
