It’s been a slow month for blogging. My sincerest apologies to the 5 readers of this blog. I know you have been eagerly waiting to hear more about what’s going on in my life.
So where to begin?
I suppose that since I love to gloat about my accomplishments, I will start with an update on my 2007 training and competitions.
On April 15th, I competed in my first triathlon of 2007. It was the Angel’s Race in
I am still not great at the swim, it’s definitely the discipline that needs the most work. The bike went well, until I got to
Next up, the run. It was relatively easy going out, but coming back in was a different story. The same incline at the end of the bike was again present at the end of the run. So Grandma Jones on the sidewalk was pacing along with her walker faster than I was able to run up the hill. It was a very technical race. Nothing like my previous two races.
After I finished, my coach and I were reviewing the results and realized that there was the possibility of me placing in my age group. We had to wait for all the athletes to finish before it was official. And that’s all she wrote. One of my personal goals of the year was to finish in the top 3 of one of my scheduled triathlons, and I hit the mark on my first one.
That is definitely one of the many highlights of my athletic career.
I will post a couple of pictures soon. I promise.
