Look Great, Feel Great, Race Great

Some experienced coaches and athletes may say that if you have a lot of energy left when you finish a race, you could have gone faster and gotten a better time. True perhaps, but my personal strategy is to finish strong and smile for the camera. Crazy, perhaps, but I’m a performer; I feed off of the energy of those around me and deliver it right back to them. Amidst the confusion of trying to keep on course I went pretty hard during the swim, and the thrill of passing and being passed on the ride kept me smiling, but in general I have very little motivation to run fast, other than to get it over with sooner. I pretty much all-out sprinted on the last stretch as soon as I saw the finish line. I still need to find out my time – and can’t wait to see the photos – my hair was perfect.

Entering a New Decade Tri-sport Style

Not long after I put “complete triathlon” on my bucket list did I have the bright idea to search for upcoming races. My new King County library card and borrowed copy of Triathlete added a bit of fuel to the fire. I quickly discovered the Washington Triathlon Event Calendar and scrolled down the list. Lo and behold, the Lake Meridian Triathlon, taking place on Sunday August 26th, is almost literally outside my front door. It also happens to be the day after my 30th birthday. I couldn’t resist.
In the two weeks that I’ve been in the area, I’ve biked Continue reading

Personal Journal: Pre-Season Reflection & Anticipation

As I return to my home area in Utah my blog updates are progressively more personal and less travel-related. It’s been almost ten days since returning to Park City and I have been extremely busy getting re-oriented. A few things have changed since I left, but for the most part I am falling back into the groove of being ‘home.’ This season is going to be a fair bit different from past seasons, however, because I will not be committed to a full time instructor schedule for the entire season, and my aim is to balance my life with skiing, dancing, traveling, and learning some new skills and languages.

Acclimation

Status

Slowly but surely I am gearing up to Winter ’11-’12 in Park City. Today I went for a hearty 25 minute jog around the neighborhood. It doesn’t sound like much but I haven’t been able to jog for the last 3 months and yesterday’s was my first jog since my injury. My body is recovering nicely and getting used to the elevation again. Last night I went to our orientation at PCMR, meaning I am once again employed. I just need a place to live so I can get situated and start working! I can’t wait to try out my brand new Lange ski boots.
