BRW Triathlon – Melbourne

I competed in the BRW triathlon today. I managed to finish the 400m swim, 10km bike ride and 4km run in 56 minutes 20 seconds. I’m pretty happy with that for my first ever triathlon. The team I was in got the following result:

Team member 2 (Nick)

Swim 14:13, Bike 25:37, Run, 17:37

Swim 14:53, Bike 28:58, Run 26:12
