Race Report: Toughman Tennessee Half Iron Distance – Lenoir City, TN

I was on an emotional roller coaster to start the weekend – Nate was supposed to be doing this race with me but work threw him a curve ball so he was stuck at home. My mom flew out to watch the kids (thank goodness) but trying to organize nap…

Race Report: Riverbluff Olympic Triathlon – Ashland City, TN

I’m about five hours post-race at this point, and the post-race stiffness and soreness has begun! All a good sign of a legit, hard, gritty race. The Riverbluff Triathlon is located in Ashland City, Tennessee, at Riverbluff Park. The park itself is gorgeous- there is a…

The 2015 Tri-2-Beat Cancer Triathlon (Sprint)

Wooooo!!!!! That is where I’ll start. This weekend was insanity.  I ordered a new tri kit from Coeur Sports which arrived on Thursday before the race.  Talk about cutting it close. THEN, (Major TMI Warning) the ::ahem:: lady ::ahem:: came to visit me for the first time since…

My First Triathlon Season’s End – Bittersweet

My very first triathlon season came to a bittersweet end this weekend with the finish of the Miami Man International Triathlon in Miami, Florida. As always, it was a whirlwind of a year between flat tires, injuries, weather setbacks, and training difficulties.  I can honestly say I’ve experienced…

The Giant Acorn Sprint Triathlon

Another sprint triathlon in the bag! Today was the Giant Acorn Sprint Triathlon, held at Lake Anna State Park in Virginia.  It was an absolutely gorgeous venue with a lake swim out and back, a rolling hill bike, and a trail-road one loop run. Nathan had an event he…

International Distance Complete!

In my last post, I had discussed the probability of dropping from the international distance to the sprint distance at the Luray Triathlon this past weekend.  Of course, a few good friends of ours let us know they were having their housewarming on Saturday afternoon, which left us trying to…
