I competed in my first Sprint Triathlon August 11. It was at Millenium Park, Grand Rapids MI. The weather was perfect. The race started at 8a.m. , 65 degrees. A sunny morning start on the beach. I was not sure what to expect. I was in the 3rd heat . The swim consisted of 500 meters. The biking was 14.8 miles, and the run was 3.1 miles. My finish time : 1:41:20. I actually felt very good afterwards.
