By now I’m sure you’ve stop at least twice a day every day asking yourself, “I wonder what Susan’s next event is going to be.” Well, ask yourself no more. I am here to announce that I am officially registered for, not one, but two more triathlons.
First up: Lake Pflugerville Triathlon, June 19th
The triathlon starts with a 500-meter swim in Lake Pflugerville with a sandy beach entry and an easy exit to a paved transition area. Then you are off on a 14-mile bike ride through the countryside with enough low rollers to keep it interesting. Racers will finish up with a 3-mile run around the lake on a flat crushed granite trail with water stops along the way. Pizza and ice cream for the finishers... can it get any better than that?
Does it get any better than that? Pizza and ice cream? I’m there. This is another Jack and Adam’s/High Five event (like the Rookie Tri) so I expect it will be a well organized race. I’m excited to increase my distances and hopefully improve a little too.
I’ve also registered for the Butler YMCA Triathlon, which is near Pittsburgh, on July 9th. I’m expecting Amanda to join me! So head over to her blog and tell her I said to sign up!
Anyway, I was registered for this race last year, but didn’t get to participate due to the whole broken shoulder and wrist thing. Minor technicality. I still got the shirt! This is the first time I put it on. I feel like a fraud.
This race is a 1/4 mile swim, 7 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. I’m not sure why the bike is so short, but if I remember correctly I think it’s super hilly, like in Pittsburgh, hilly. So yeah, I’m scared. The good thing, like really good thing, TRACEY!
Tracey is my “training partner” from Pittsburgh and
I’ll be eating her dust we’re going to do the race together. Yay for races with friends!
So there you have it, you don’t have to lie awake at night wondering anymore. I still need to find an event in May. I’m thinking of doing this!
