I rode up to Suncrest on my bike!  First ride of the season.  I quickly remembered how much my lower back feels the ride.  Rode up next to a dude that passed me once...  By the end of the mountain I was far ahead of him.  Beautiful ride. :)

6 miles on the TM.

FIRST TRIATHLON EVER!!!!!  I think I might be in love.  I still have mixed feelings about the triathlon.  

This was a reverse tri so we ran, biked, and swam last.  The day before David and I drove the course to check the beastly hills we would be racing in the morning.  First came the 1.5 miles up hill for the run, no joke!  But there was just as much downhill.  There were also two bike loops for the course making it 8.5 miles.  450 meters were to held in the outdoor PG poop pool.

Morning came, race time was at 9:00.  All of the rain had passed creating perfect running temps.  We set up our bikes when I discovered I had left my goggles at home.  BLAH!  We drove to Wal-Mart and I purchased some real junkers for a few bucks.

Run:  Took me 22 minutes, I was the first lady.  Took the first mile nice and easy.  I left the other lead ladies early in the race.

Bike:  I don't know how long it took but I held the lead.

Pool:  Missy from out of nowhere passed me up in the pool.  The swim felt like it was dragging.  Guess I know where to focus!  I got really confused in the pool and I still wonder if I swam extra? 

It was awesome being with David at a race!  I saw him exit the transition station on his bike and I saw him in the pool.  It was really fun racing with him.  If David had not signed up for this race, I really don't think I would have either.

I took 2nd overall for the ladies maintaining the lead for the majority of the race. I felt good about my first Tri. 

 Missed the awards ceremony because I had to be to a funeral in Draper.  :(

10 at a reasonable pace on hills.  :)  Old Lehi loop.  80 minutes.  

Felt really tired and fatigued.  Hopped into an ice-bath for 15 mnutes and my legs feel so much better!

Miles @ the Hill Air Force Base on the TM at the gym.  Very nice gymnasium the Hill Air Force folk possess.  It's fun to watch people come and go at that gym.

11 mile loop around Hill Air Force Base on the bike with David and his parents.

Very good day. :)

Ragnar Relay was quite the experience.  I was runner 6.  Very long day in the car with friends.  If I do this race again I won't be doing it with the same group.  I am not a very patient person when it comes to waiting for people.  All in all this was a great race experience.  My second leg was probably one of the most difficult runs I have ever done.  I caught myself being emotional in my run.  When I got to the top of the hill or the end of my leg there was no one to hand off to.  I ended up passing about thirty teams when I would run my legs.
