Pre-race routine:

Pre-race meeting took too long, couldn't get into the poor until 5 minutes before race beginning.
Event warmup:

Hardly any, pool occupied until 5 minutes before the race began. Needed about another 5 minutes in the pool
  • 10m
  • 475 yards
  • 02m 07s / 100 yards

Did okay for the first 200, but then had to do alternating lengths of back and free.
What would you do differently?:

Warm up more
Transition 1
  • 10m

Hmmm... not so great in that I first put my bra on backwards and inside out. Second try ended up being just inside out, so I called that good enough. Rest of getting changed was uneventful.
What would you do differently?:

Getting clothes on in the right direction would help
  • 20m
  • 11.4 miles

Missed goal of 10 laps by 0.75 laps, but this is the fastest mile I've ever run!
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Did another 10 minutes on a spin bike and then ran/walked for another 20 minutes

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training and weight

Event comments:

Good race with lots of door prizes and volunteers. Took a really long time (1+ hr) to post the results, but I won my age group so I'm super stoked!!

Course: On spin bike. Had it on level 8 for the first five minutes, but then found out you can go on level 1, so did.

A product review of the Louis Garneau Tri Air Triathlon Shoe. After nearly two years of testing, see how this shoe performed. Currently being replaced by the Tri Air 2.

This life of mine is not so different from yours. It has a multitude of similarities. I suffer from uncertainty, I get nervous at the thought of registering and when getting to the starting line.

I am not going to buy a tri-suit before my first tri - I want to make sure I am going to stick with this before I spend a lot of money on it so I want to figure out what will work best.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.

I may not have pre-pubescent hips or breasts and at 36 that would be ridiculous. I do not need to have an "airbrushed body" and why do I revere that?

The human body can endure extreme physical hardships but a trained, confident mind can endure much more.
