Delta Tri 2009

Leaving T2 in the Delta Triathlon 2008
(even though I am not fast, the outfit got me noticed)

For the past few years I have participated in the Delta Triathlon. A Sprint triathlon organized by the City of Delta BC.
This year, I am in the best shape of my life but have not been training specifically for a sprint distance race. I am curious to improve my times from last year.

Here are my splits from 2008
700m Swim + T1 = 13:08
20km Bike + T2 = 44:49
5km Run = 27:08
Total time = 1:25:04
9/24 in my Age Group
68/168 Female
188/341 Over All Finisher


Prediction for 2009: I am pretty sure I should be able to take of a few minutes off my total time. My bike and run should be faster than last year. My swim will probably be about the same.

I found your blog through a link with BT for your Lake Stevens race report. I'll be doing that race this year, then volunteering at IMC a couple of weeks later!

Love the Curious George jersey. Best of luck at the race this weekend!

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

|ronman Canada Race Report - Part 6 (Final Report but just the beginning)

Run – 42.2kms – 5:11:09 The run was slow and basically went as planned. The first 3kms of the run are in and around the finish line. When I was at about the 2km mark, I could hear Jordon Rapp, the race winner giving his victory interview with Steve King. How crazy is that??!! I have 40kms to go on the run and the winner has finished. As I headed out of town and down Main Street I saw www.twitter.com/kelownagurl and her husband Erik cheering me on. Not more than 50 feet later I saw www.twitter.com/trifunster and her husband. I was running slowly but had a smile on my face and felt pretty good. I was not really concerned about the distance I had to cover still. I was pretty excited that I had now finished the swim and the bike and was now on the run. It was like being in a dream how quickly the time had passed during the day. Around 9kms into the run I started to feel the distinct tightness of my right IT Band. I had ITB 10 years ago when I first started to run marathons

Victoria Half Iron Race Report

As many of you have already heard on Twitter, I ROCKED the Victoria Half Iron on Sunday June 21, 2009. Check out my race photos here . Did I win the race? No Did I place in my age group? No Did I finish in the top half of my age group? No, still secure as a below average age grouper Did I finish the swim faster than the top 2 women finishers? YES! Did I feel GREAT in the WHOLE race? YES! Was all the training worth it? H*LL YAH ! Am I confident that I am well on my way to a great Ironman Canada? YES! Ok , here is how it all unfolded... Thursday June 18 th I spoke with Coach Kevin on the phone to review my nutrition plan for the race as well as pre -race. After some fancy calculations, this was what we decided on: Bike Nutrition - estimated 3:30 hour bike time 16oz of Orange GU2O and 3 Shot Bloks per hour (spread out throughout the hour for hour 1 and hour 2) 16oz of Gatorade and 1 shot block for the last hour 500ml of water in my Aero Bottle I only have 2 water bottle
