My first Sandman Triathlon at the age of 43...

The 1999 Neptune Festival and the Sandman Triathlon was held at Virginia Beach, Virginia on the ocean front. It was a beautiful Sunday morning.  The race consisted of a 1k (.6mi) ocean swim, 14 mile bike ride and a 5k(3.2mi) run on the boardwalk. 600 started and only 499 finished-I was 493.  Photos by Matthew Spencer
