Another unique aspect of Buffalo's 10th anniversary year is we had the opportunity to set a world record, and we did. Before the race start over 400 athletes entered the water to break the record for most individuals treading water at one time!! I am now part of the Guiness Book of World Records!!
Despite the cold morning and 66 degree water temperature on race day, I was pleasantly surprised by my finishing results! I placed 4th in my age group out of 45 participants--wow I didn't expect to do that well, especially so early in the season! I also shaved about 7 minutes off my course time from past year and PR'd on my 5K run at the end!! Nothing beats a happy triathlete! :)
Next on the race schedule is Trinona!
Teammates waiting for race start!
