The first time is special

I've done 10 running races and 5 triathlons of varying distances. I don't remember what my final time was for the tri I did 2 weeks ago. I don't know what my marathon time was. (I can come close.) I can only guess at what my Olympic Tris, half-marathons and 10k times were. Yet I know I finished my first triathlon last year in 1:53:04. To the second.

Why has that number stuck with me and none of the others?

I'm not sure. Then again, with someone so OCD about the numbers as you have shown yourself to be, I'm shocked you don't have them all written down, somewhere.

I can tell you the exact time of not only every race, but nearly every run I've ever done. Or triathlon. And most bikes and swims. I'm just that anal.
