One of the coolest races I've ever done was today, Espirit de She!! I've did this race last year and will continue to do it! It's an all girls triathlon and everything about it rocks!
Marquee and my training had been going really well. My mom was in town so she got to come watch too!
The start was delayed while they waited for an ambulance and it felt like it took FOREVER! I found Maria to hang out with and I think we ended up starting 25 minutes late. Not fun, when you're already sweating in your wet suit!
I tried getting Gatorade, water, and ice at the aid station- desperate for some help but nothing worked. It was 2 loops on the run and second was even worse than the first. I was so upset and disappointed with myself I just wanted to be done. It was so hot and I could feel myself getting a sunburn on the final stretch.
I finished in 3:18, not even close to the 3 hour finish I was going for but I know what I need to work on. More bricks and tempo runs will be in my near future! ;)
