Cedars of Lebanon Triathlon Results

Demetrius and I raced in the Cedars of Lebanon triathlon on Saturday. It was a perfect day for racing; not too hot and lots of sunshine. We actually were numbered 138 and 139, so we started 5 seconds apart. It was a fun race, especially the steeplechase type run to the first transition area. There were 390 total participants ranging in experience from complete beginner to professional. I finished 8th overall, 1st in my age group (24-29) in 47:04. Also had the 4th fastest bike split in 24:54. Demetrius finished 26th overall, 4th in his age group (40-44) and had the 15th fastest bike split. I'd encourage anyone to try this race next year (assuming its the same distance). It's extremely beginner friendly and it's a great feeling when you cross that finish line. Hope everyone had a great weekend and I'm looking forward to a great summer of bike riding! Jason Sexton

I did, however, successfully put my shirt on backwards when I got to the bike transition, only to take it off, and fumble with it for 15+ seconds, then totally screw up getting into my bike shoes .. costing me a few more seconds... then to find out that I missed 2nd place in my age by 11 seconds, and 3rd by 10seconds... its good to knock the dust off and can't wait to be aggressive and get my killer instinct back for my next tri...
