First triathlon of 2022 is in the books.
Participated in the Kinetic Smithfield Sprint Triathlon. Well organzied event in a cute little town. It was the first pool triathlon I've participated in. The self seeding mechanism a little rough. I tried to get in line at the appropriate time, but the line wrapped around the building and after waiting in line I realized when I got to the pool deck I would be behind people that were back stroking and breast stroking.... When I saw this, I activley started moving in front of people by asking them what their expected time was. It was only a 300 meter swim and it all worked out ok.
The bike was a short 10 miles. The temperature was a bit brisk and took about 10 or 15 minutes to warm up. Only a couple of hills. There was a little car traffic to be on the lookout for and the last quarter mile was stuck riding behind a couple cars. My garmin read a total of 380 ft of ascent.
The run was mostly flat with little to no car traffic.
The post race meal was awesome bbq from Q Daddy's.
Overall, great race and start to the 2022 triathlon year!
