This race was my first triathlon of the year, and my first trip to the state of Texas. It was also one of QT2’s key team races for the year, so we had over 30 athletes racing!
This post started out as recap from QT2 Camp, but most of the details were covered on my teammates blogs (check out posts from Matt, Jessie, and Kim, and a post + video from Pedro).

I completed my first triathlon! Overall, I can say it went smoothly and successfully. I had a lot of fun, and was happy with my final times and finishing place. Here’s the full race recap…
