can you tell? 😉 hahaha! The shirt is so awesome too! Last time it was a black tech shirt… I HAVE ENOUGH TECH SHIRTS! So I was extremely pleased to reach into my bag and find this shirt. And it’s GREEN! (My favorite color!)

I have a good feeling about the race. I’ve trained for the swimming and running (duh) and I guess the bike too.
Swim hard, peddle, sprint. That’s the plan.

I don’t have any specific goals in mind, but I’d like to rank somewhere towards the top half of my grouping! Although, I’m not 100% sure what my group is… Haha!

Last time I did the race was in 2012 and these were my stats… (The bottom row!)

Yeaaaah, not too hot. Buuuuut that was ~40 pounds ago and I’d like to think I’m in much better shape. 😉
Also, I got a flat tire during the bike! Sooo knock on wood that doesn’t happen again!

So I guess you can say that my goal for the Rookie Tri is to crush my old times. Yeah, what’s better than competing against your self?! Nothing.

Aaaaand I’d like to clock 8:15 minute/miles for the run. Ambitious? You betcha.

I’m not too worried! I’m so pumped!

I’ll let you know how it goes after the race tomorrow!
I haven’t practiced transitions… Yikes. So I might fit that in today!
Hahaha, oh well! Living life on the edge, right? 😀

Have a wonderful first Saturday of May!
Love,
Juliana

P.S. I reached my April mileage goal! 100 miles baby. I also procrastinated this so I ran 11 miles on 4/29 and 9 miles on 4/30… I don’t taper well!

  1. Good luck with your race! That sounds like a lot of fun! I’d love to try a triathlon some day… but I’ve got a lot of work to do with my swimming, haha.
