I have to finish an article for Tri-DC this weekend. So, I don't have time to write a lengthy & informative play-by-play race report.
Let me just say this:
1. Cramping during a race stinks. What's worse is when those cramps are only plagued by the female gender. No salt tablets or Gu can alleviate those.
2. I had wanted to cut my time from last year, but I thought it was funny that I got (almost exactly) the same time.
3. I didn't feel as burnt out after the race as I did last year. Two days after the race, I feel like I could jump back without any grumbling. This means more to me than my race time. Also, I felt as though I raced within my limits & didn't over exceed them (like last year).
4. I got 2nd place in the Athena category! My trophy is coming in the mail.
& here are some pictures:
Check out that hot bike!
Me on the run. I'm really grabbing a cup of water - not just looking like I'm sort of running/dancing.
*Phew* that was tiring.
Hurray! We did it!! The kids chalk-marked the finish line.
nowhere to go but up. (Part II)
