I DID IT!! I completed Wildflower, and under 3 hours to boot! I must say, I'm really proud of myself. The perfectionist in me is, of course, frustrated with the slow swim time and the agony I endured during the run (more to follow in race report), but nonetheless, I am proud.

As I said...the perfectionist in me was unhappy with a couple things, namely the run, though my swim could've been a bit better. Perhaps wetsuits really should be a consideration for me...
