    By Gary Cook, September 26, 2012 at 8:03 pmThanks so much for sharing. We do all seem to get too chagut up at times with what are Garmins are telling us and miss out on a good time. During the YMCA Triathlon last Saturday, I decided to leave the Garmin and the competetive attitude at home and just have a good time. In doing so, I ended up not only having a good time, but I had a good time (pun intended). I hope to continue with this poistive attitude in future races. Great story!!
