Slightly injured, lingering cough - so can't complain about this result. 1 min faster than last year.

Warm down:

Huge brunch, waiting around for draw prizes (free flights, 1000 dollars in gift cards - it's crazy).


Event comments:

Race has incredible door prizes, and a huge fancy brunch afterwards. My favorite race of the year for that sort of thing.

In February, I was given a very special gift: a gift certificate to buy a nice road bike. That's when I realized there was no turning back. I WAS doing this.

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.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
