I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I signed up for this race, and it finally happened this past weekend! Last September, I decided to sign up for Timberman Ironman 70.3 at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire as my goal race for 2012. At this point, I didn’t even have a bike, and I had been back in the pool for only a couple of weeks!

I completed my first triathlon!  Overall, I can say it went smoothly and successfully.  I had a lot of fun, and was happy with my final times and finishing place.  Here’s the full race recap…

Last night, I attended “Newbie Night” at Quad Cycles in Arlington.  It was hosted by 3 Max Performance race directors (one being my favorite A.R.T. specialist from Active Release Boston!), and covered everything from transition set-up, to race start times, to nutrition.  Most of it was specific to the Season Opener triathlon in 1.5 weeks, but a lot of it can be applied to any triathlon.

Last weekend was my first multi-sport race at the Wrentham Duathlon!  This duathlon is pretty short – a 3 mile run, 11 mile bike, and 2 mile run, and a great race to start off the season!  It was a beautiful day, and I had great support – my Mom, my sister and her boyfriend made the trip to watch me race.
