I haven't been posted in days!!! I keep telling myself I need to but never get to it....
Anyway.... some quick updates:
- May 3 Tri Zou (sprint) Triathlon... Columbia, MO. I PR'ed by around 3 min. Finished in 1hr 13min.
- May 17 Memphis in May (Olympic) Triathlon.... I had a really good race. It was windy so the swim was a bit choppy and the bike wasn't too pleasant. I still managed to PR for Oly distance. Total time: 2hrs 24min. I would suggest this race to anyone, very well organized, a lot of fun, great venue, good courses and fantastic crowd and volunteer support.
- June 6 Quartermax/Ultramax Triathlon... Innsbrook, MO. This is, hands down the hardest triathlon I have ever done... mind you I haven't done a ton of tris but in the last 3 years I have participated in a few, including 2 HIMs. I did it last year and even though last year it was in August, (pretty darn hot and humid), I still PR'ed by 5min . My total time: 1hr 23min This truly is a tough tri since both the bike and run are quite hilly.
Not this weekend but the next one, I will be doing my third HIM race. This is not an Ironman branded tri but it's the HIM distance. The race is called Cutting Edge Half Classic Triathlon and it's in Effingham, IL. I am excited about it and wondering what my time will be.
I just got some new wheels. Early Father's Day present.... yup.... got a wheel set, bless my girlies and wifey : )
The wheels are the Easton EA90 SLX, they are pretty light (1398 grams) and feel really nice and smooth. Love them! Couldn't get them on time for the Innsbrook tri but I have them now and ready to roll.
Here's a pic of Diabla and her new wheels... doesn't she look hot? :)
80 days until Ironman Louisville!!!
