This was my best swim, did suggested visualization calmed before start kept a steady pace and steady breathing. One marker at a time good buoy spotting.

Congrats on a good race, Lana!  There is always something to be learned for the next event.  Glad the visualization worked for you, I do that as well and find it to be very helpful as does focusing on my breathing (meditating) before an event.

When shopping for triathlon bike aerobars, considerations range from adjustability, comfort, aerodynamics, weight, and of course, price.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

Experts agree, doing a “mock,” triathlon on the course you’re racing can aid you in your training; performance and most of all quell some nervous energy.
