Three quick things:
Just a quick note to let you all know that Pharmie and I had a GREAT time at the Liberty Triathlon today out in Maple Plain. My full report will come later, but I can say that I finished with a nice Olympic Distance PR!! We saw a lot of people out there that we knew, and many of them did AWESOME!! Big congrats to everyone!
I’ll have more on today’s race early next week - for now I’ll leave you with a photo that rockstar Cathy Y snapped of me coming out of the water this morning:
Thanks Cathy! I NEVER look that good exiting the water!
I don’t know what you did, but it worked!!
So let’s backup to Thursday evening. Pharmie and I headed to Lake Nokomis for our first open water swim since our 70.3 in NOLA 2 months ago. (And I needed to try out my SUGOi Tri Suit in the water.) The water was COLD. Here’s Pharmie thinking about getting her upper body wet:
Yesterday morning, a few of the CVA Tri Club students did their first brick! (If you’re out of the loop, I’m helping to train a number of students at the College of Visual Arts [one of the colleges where I teach] so that they can finish their first sprint tri in about 6 weeks!) They were going to do a hard 10 mile ride, followed by a solid 2 mile run. Here’s Cynthia and Jamie heading out down the school’s sidewalk:
Trent and Cynthia got back from the bike at about the same time. Here’s Trent in the upper corner headed out on his run, and Cynthia in the lower corner hopping off her bike:
Nice job, Trent!
Today, at the race, Sarah and Evan (2 CVA Tri Club students) came to the race. The triathlon got them SUPER PUMPED UP to do their triathlon in a few weeks!! I’m glad they had such a good time!! Thanks for coming to cheer you 2!
So, make sure to stop by Monday to put your name in the hat for a free pair of shoes!! Really!! And then on Tuesday, I’ll put up my race report from today! Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy the weather!!
Update: Pharmie just put up her race report with some photos - check it out!!
