Post-Race DrinkWater, boring but can’t get anything else down.

Been doing triathlon since 2014 and definitely blundered through my first year. I had my helmet on backwards during the first group ride I ever did, toppled over as soon as I tried unclipping, and couldn’t do a group swim without massive panick attacks. I’ve come a long way in 5 years and have made some of my best friends through this sport. I have such a long way to go and so many goals to achieve. I couldn’t imagine my life without triathlon. The times I have been forced to sit out due to injury have been some of my darkest.
