Stealth Official Results!

Official time = 2:10:36

At first I was shocked to see my swim time posted as 14:13. I mean I know my swim was terrible, but I know it wasn't that bad. Then I got to looking more and comparing their times with my times, and I realized that they included T1 time in the Bike time and T2 time in the swim. So okay - at least the results jive. Next I was upset that they had me listed as an age grouper as I would have been 3rd in the Athena division. I checked my copy of the registration form and yes I checked athena as well as my age group. Then I saw the instructions "check one" okay so I checked both and they took my age first. Oh well, then I looked at my placing again and realized that I placed 2nd in my age group! 2nd is better than 3rd any day.

I'm still slow - but I still have a lot of mass to move too. One step at a time, one pound at a time, one day at a time.

Oh yeah, and I've got yet another unique spelling of my name to add to the list. "Szanne" It is close to Shazam, which I've used in the past to indicate the difference in pronunciations of Susan vs. Suzanne. But I digress...

Good job! You know, "Shazam" would be a really neat kind of personal motto/logo thing, too! I didn't realize you were 35-39; I thought you were younger than that.

Nice job. Isn't it nice when 'mistakes' turn out to be a blessing (2nd in age grouper vs 3rd in athenda). :)
