It’s been nearly 2 years to the day since I completed my first – and only – triathlon. I had SUCH a blast doing the Greeley Sprint Tri in 2011, but my heart and passion lies in the mountains (trail running). So I haven’t hit the pool for quite a while.
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the lovely reps at Iron Girl because they wanted to know if I’d be willing to give it another tri and participate in the Cherry Creek Iron Girl Sprint Tri on August 24th, 2013. I said, sure, why not!
– it’s “just” a sprint tri, which means 1/2 mile Swim — 12 mile Bike — 3 mile Run.
– it’s a triathlon for JUST women so it’s really beginner-friendly!
– fun swag and a post-race breakfast cafe
– it’s in mid-August so you know the weather will be awsome
Ask me to train for a marathon, and I’m all over it, no prob. Ask me to train for a 1/2 mile swim? I’m terrified. Horrified. But it’ll be a great way to shape up this summer, as well as work on my tan as I swim in our outdoor pool!
In the spirit of full disclosure, Iron Girl sponsored my registration cost (i.e., I didn’t have to pay the $95 registration fee), in return for publicity on my blog. I think I lucked out on this one.
I’m pretty stoked to get back in the pool and on the saddle this summer. This’ll be a fun challenge for myself and I can’t wait to get to training.
10 weeks till race day!!!
