Texas 70.3

This was my motivation I had over the weekend, thanks to my home stay with Doug Storey & his family. Do you know whose autographs these are?

However, things didn't quite go as planned. I made some mistakes in the race that I can take to use and grow. After the swim-- starting the bike I was pushing about as hard as I could and people were passing me left and well on my left. Once we reached the seawall I could hear my front brake rubbing the wheel. I jump off twice to fix it. After this my legs weren't good for much and around mile 48 of the bike my glutes got soooo tight, I was about to cry. I tried to push but I couldn't take it anymore and rode the last 8 miles cruisin' upright. I was hoping for a good run--as I jumped off bike, I felt like I duck as the only thing I had good was the waddle

Thank you everyone for the incredible support through a lot facebook and text messaging. Most importantly thanks to my Lord for allowing me use this as a learning experience, so I can hopefully move forward. Now that I've learned from my mistakes. I'm looking forward to getting recovered and moving on to the next one which is in Kemah end of this month.

  1. I've found that I learn the most from races that don't go well. Sorry you had such a rough time on the course. Love your attitude though - next time!
