It's Official...

I've known which tri would be my 1st for awhile now, but I didn't register until yesterday.

At first, I thought my 1st tri would be CB&I. It was perfect - it was practically in my backyard (The Woodlands) and 4 of my Woodland's Fit friends were also going to train for it (and it would be the first tri for 3 of the 4!). Plus, we joined a team for training and advice - this would be Team iTri, headed by a local, experienced triathlete. But, when I went to register for CB&I it hit me like a TON of bricks....CB&I is on the munchkin's 1st birthday!

Now, I know what you're thinking...the baby has no clue that it's his first birthday. But, he has two sets of grandparents who do. Much like the kiddo's 1st birthday, we'll have a house full of family there, kiddos running everywhere, tons of hoopla to commemorate the event and the munchkin will have no clue what's going on. But that's our family, it's just what we do (rolling eyes).

So, my 1st tri will be....


May 10

200 yd swim, 8 mile bike, 2 mile run

Honestly, I do feel better knowing that with my limited schedule, I will only have to pull off a 200 yd swim (CB&I was 500m). The bike and run are shorter, so that will be easy peasy (with some brick workouts of course).

So there you have it - my 1st tri! If I find that I actually enjoy this tri-thing, I do plan to register for a couple more (including ones with a 500m swim).

when you're ready to try an open water swim- which you should do before May- let me know. I'll go with you.

Awesome! Trigirl is a great group, Jana and Carrie really know what they're doing. I'll probably be there either racing or volunteering.
