Tri 2 Love Tri 2 Inspire Tri 2 Support...

...always Tri

This was my T-Shirt I was handed as my souvenir for my 2nd Tri For The Cure this past weekend. I loved the slogan so much I had to use it as my blog title. Not only because I believe it is an amazing slogan, but also because it is was my 2nd Tri (get it... Tri 2?)

The Triathlon was fantastic again this year. I love that it is women only. I love the camaraderie. I love the cause. What is not to love? This year it was a 400 meter swim (quarter mile) an 8 mile bike ride and a 2.5 mile run at the end.

My number was 445 this year. I went in the water at 9am and was finished in 1hr 11 minutes. This was almost 13 minutes better than my time last year! I was very excited and excited to see if I can achieve my new goal for next year of shaving another 11 minutes off to finish in 1 hr our less. It is pretty difficult to shave that much time off in one year (two years in a row no doubt) but I love a challenge. And lastly... I got another medal to add to my collection. Yeah!

My next Triathlon will be next Month at Seville Country Club in Gilbert. This one will be a 300 meter swim, 15.4 mile bike and a 2 mile run. It will be a little more difficult than the last one, but I am looking forward to it! Wish me luck!
