    Great stuff, Scott,

    You have really captured well the 'heat of battle' problems that always seem to occur. The old race-day adage of 'start slow, then slow down' is good advice for when the adrenaline is pumping. Your T1 antics could be added to an ancient post of mine here: http://forum.220magazine.com/tm.asp?m=14753&mpage=1&key=#14815

    I know I'm a dullard and I keep repeating myself, but two notable sprint tri newbies (yourself and GaryRoberts) have both now learned the most valuable lesson... that there is no substitute for my standard advice: Get out there and cock it up properly!

    Well done (to you, Gary and all the other newbies) and welcome to the fold!

    Nice one Scott!

    All these "first tri" accounts are making me wish my next race was closer!

    Glad to be of service, brizzi. [:D] I'd be laughing too if I hadn't actually done ALL of those things. [:@]

    Hey scott, well done! i kept on reading thinking you'd say "then i forgot the gel in my shoe and squished it" - something i'd do!
  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    Great result Scott :D - great report too, and yes I did read it all ;)

    Great write up & well done..do you have your splits? & what were the distances? Both will help with the 'where can I win back time' analysis.

    Great write-up Scott and good inspiration for us newbies that still have their first tri coming up! I like the detailed account and surely had to laugh about the hick-ups .... oh my god, will this happen to me? Yes it will, but I am going to enjoy every bit of it! Congratulations!

    Brilliant Scott, and a great time to boot! I actually got butterflies reading that with only 19days till my first.

    Oh god...

    Scott - Thats fab mate, I am so glad you did the whole thing. I did think you had started a book when I first read it.

    Mate I am so jealous, I have 3 weeks to wait till my story of rack and ruin is posted.

    Well done!
