felt tired and slow. lots of aggression & contact. was happy to be done with the swim.

slow getting my stuff on but took my time to catch my breath.

course was a mix of tacky, mud and dusty dirt.

slow to move to the run.

Looks like it must have been a very tough course especially the bike.  Great job getting through it even though injured.

I was glad to have finished without destroying my foot.

That race never disappoints in difficulty.

Immediately I felt attracted by the challenge. I have done plenty of biking this summer and a new motivation, particularly toward the end of the summer, was what I needed.

From couch potato to a tri in 8 weeks. It was the most fun I've had in a long time. The race organizers had it down and there were no problems at all. This was the perfect first tri, in my opinion.

My 1st triathlon, Xterra and the mess I made of myself. This wasn’t your regular triathlon, it was off-road.

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.

My expectations for the quality of this years’ Triathlon world championship were fulfilled. This was because of the superb location that is like no other along with having the top triathletes present.
