Race Report is done. Thanks to everyone who was following my race.

I'm in heaven right now....Amanda Beard is on the cover of Triathlete mag. She is HOTTT!

The sked calls for an hour swim today. Not sure if I will get it done. I'm not sore or anything, its just that I really need to work some more on my resume. For most, this is probably a one day process. I on the other hand would rather have a root canal than write my resume.

Got home from Prescott this afternoon. Started the day by going to breakfast with my family and in laws. We then stopped by the YMCA to retrive our clothing that we left on the course.

On the way home, we did some shopping at the outlet mall in Anthem. We walked around for a few hours which was nice.

I'll complete a RR tomorrow.

Let me just say that this was the hardest half mary I've ever done. The entire course you were either climbing a hill or going down a hill. The first half was just about all climb. I am pleased with my time as this was really a C- race for me. The goal simply was to have fun and not get hurt.

The Garmin stats that the ascent was a total of 1992 ft.

Hey, I completed a tri yesterday. It is amazing how much easier this stuff gets as I do more. So more good times were had again last night at the lake.

The water was really choppy. I thought I was in the ocean. I actually really enjoyed it. I feel sooo much better about my swim. Last year, I would struggle to do a few laps around the inner bouys. Now, I'm swimming a few laps on the outer bouys. Although, I'm slow. I'm really just trying to work on staying cool, calm and collected out there. Also trying to work on form.

I chose not to run to the top of the hill because of my half mary tomorrow. Oh, yeah! I have to go pack for that and get some new tunes on the ipod.

Boise is less than a month away. I'm really starting to feel comfortable with the distance. I'm certainly not saying it will be easy for me, but my thoughts are much different now compared to when I signed up for it at the beginning of the year.

Have a great weekend everyone.

A little bike ride and run is on the sked today. I'm also thinking about Strong class at LTF.

I'm also going to check out an episode of Carrier that was on PBS. Being a former military guy, I kind of dig this sort of thing. I am usually able to decipher what is propaganda and what is real.
