So I mentioned in my race report that I had some Garmin issues. I set my Garmin to "Auto Multisport," and then I hit START when the race started. But I hadn't FULLY set it yet, so it was just a timer running... no multisport settings. I didn't realize it until 2 blocks into the bike. So here's what that looked like:
Swim, transition, and 2 blocks of riding.
Did I really do a 180 and go backwards for a while? Yep, that's how I swim.
Oh yeah, I forgot that I hit the shore and then went BACK into the lake. I realized I wasn't done peeing.
(May or may not actually be that pace.)
And in one final "folly," my wife just moved from 3rd to 2nd in her age group! (I'm not saying it's a folly that she was 2nd - I'm saying it was initially a timing issue.) The person who was originally first in her age group is now listed as 5th. So my wife's medal should say "2nd" like mine:
