I wanna, but I'm scairt.
All work, no play for me. Boo.
Last semester of nursing school starts Tuesday. Boo.
Must ride soon.
Must run soon.
Did 20-miler this past Friday in preparation for Akron Marathon on 9/27....
Ummm, I wanna play.
I'd go for September 20th or 21st.
Do I need a membership? ;)
Michiganders will show you and the fam a great time.
I'm in like Flynn.
It's part of his charm.
But, I'll do him one better.
It was a sprint distance. I loved it so much, I might do another one on 8/24! :D
For my first tri (sprint) last night, I wore my Pearl Izumi tri shorts over my performance one-piece TYR bathing suit. It was super comfy. That being said, I'll probably upgrade to a tri top and...
Survived my first sprint triathlon last night. A great small (400 participants) first-time event, held in Brighton, MI. This was my first tri, and I only entered three weeks ago! Sponsored by a local...
We need more cycling groups up here in the Flint area. :(
I'll ride. :)
The swim is in Island Lake in the Island Lake Recreation Area in Brighton...
Great job...I hope I have as good as a report on my first sprint tri next week!!
I've done a few sessions in the pool, logging many, many meters. I have a good feel for breathing, stroke, etc. I don't think I'll use 'proper technique' the entire way, but at least I know how!
Love that area of MI. I live downstate, but I can only imagine how beautiful the rides must be up there. Enjoy!
Thanks for these resources...they have been a great read!
I was able to pull off roughly 500 meters in the pool today on my first go! I took plenty of breaks, but I felt good about how much I was able to do.
I figure I'll flip on my back when I get tired and float a bit to catch my breath before going back at it.
I'm sure my technique this first time will suck big-time, but hey, that's okay!
For my first tri in a few weeks, I plan on tri shorts, sports bra for the swim, and if needed, I'll put on a compression type longer top for the bike and run.
Does this sound good?
Thanks to all for the tips...I feel like I *know* what I need to do, it's just a matter of doing it!
I'll be doing the T-Rex Triathlon in Brighton, MI on 8/13.
I'm scared as you-know-what.
I have limited experience in the water, swimming more than recreationally, although recently I've done a...
Thanks for the info...I'll check into those!! I'm rarin' to go!!
Great pics..great reports. Where do I sign up for next year? :D
I just have to find a race and sign up...
I'm a new member to the bikeforums site, and I am the proud new owner of a beautiful GIANT OCR1W. That being said, I'm itchin' to get this bike on the road!
Does anyone know where...
I just bought a Giant OCR1W, and after riding both men's and WSD, I chose the OCR1W. I am 5'4" and 115, and this bike fit me perfectly.
I think the fit is key, regardless of the 'gender' of the...
