My first Aquathlon

So the next competition I can call "my first". 750m swim and 3.3km run. It was one week before my marathon, but a short distance should not hurt. Wetsuit was allowed but it seemed I was one of a few to put one on. Most of the others started without one, which was weired since it was a cold day and the water was not much warmer. Well nothing special happened, since I had quite some trouble with stitches. In the end I could at least put in a nice sprint.

I came in third in my class, which was not astonishing since only 4 in my class started. Most of the others were not older than 22 and all much better than me - this was not too good for my ego.
