I went in for surgery on Wednesday. My mom arrived here in Colorado that evening, just in time for my discharge from the hospital, after dealing with Hurricane Sandy back home in Maryland. I got her to take a couple of photos of me at the hospital, which, now I understand why she hesitated. I looked a wreck! But after being under general anesthesia for 4 hours and having cartilage and bone in my right hip pummeled into place, of course I looked a wreck. I also talked non-stop from when I woke up until when I went to bed, close to 5 hours. Heaven! Then my mom went home yesterday morning, she was just here for a couple days but it ...
I raced another off-road triathlon this past weekend: the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships slash XTERRA Southeast Championship in Pelham Alabama. It was in Oak Mountain State Park, outside Birmingham, and for my first trip to Alabama this was pretty much the ideal destination.The trails were really nice, the terrain beautiful, and the people hospitable. I had a great homestay too. [caption id="attachment_3634" align="alignnone" width="119" caption="See, the trails were nice!"][/caption] As for the race, it was rendered yet another non-event-of-2012 for me when I started getting searing back pain almost as soon as I hit the trail on the bike. It hurt so much.  I'm ...
This was my second year racing the Rev3 Knoxville Olympic distance triathlon. Next year will be my third year, it's one of my favorite race courses and race locations! I was really happy with how the race weekend went. I got to spend great time with other athletes and teammates, thanks to the fact that many of us stayed in the host hotel (which had spacious rooms and great amenities, including free internet, thanks Holiday Inn Worlds Fair Park!). And I enjoyed checking out the new Lazer Helmet colors at the expo. [caption id="attachment_3622" align="alignnone" width="149" caption="Two of my favorites... Lazer + Rev3!"]...
I raced my first triathlon of 2012 on April 14 outside Las Vegas. After racing one super fun small Xterra last year, and after spending more and more time on my mountain bike to the point of justifying a gorgeous upgrade, I decided to race the Xterra USA championship series this year! Las Vegas was the first stop. The swim was pretty normal, there isn't a whole lot you can do to make an off-road triathlon's swim more "rugged" than an on-road triathlon's. It was a little bit cold though. My swim was OK, I started out on a girl's feet and after a couple hundred meters I realized hey wait a minute, this girl is SLOWER than me! ...
Running how I like to imagine myself RunningWhat a great end to 2010! Yesterday I raced the Amica 19.7 Phoenix. It was a blast! The course was challenging, beautiful, and well-staffed, I got to hang out with my favorite Eagleman 2009 roommate and fellow PowerBar Team Elite member Amy Kloner, and I came home with some cash! A quick race report before I go write an essay on small-n case study methodology: the swim was OK. It was great because I got to wear my Rocket Science speedsuit ...
Today I did the Denver Tri for the Cure Sprint Triathlon. It was really fun, obviously partly because I won and had a very enthusiastic photographer in tow, but also because I really like meeting other women athletes of all experience levels. There were tons of enthusiastic racers! This race was touted as the largest all-women's 1-day sprint-distance triathlon in the world (although, at 3,000 entrants, it was smaller than the 5,500-entrant largest all-women's 1-day sprint-distance triathlon I also won last year, Danskin Seattle - either way, glad I have my bases sort of covered on winning the largest all-women's 1-day sprint-distance triathlon). I also enjoy racing for a cause, because it gives me a perspective on ...
