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!

Pave Culture Cycliste - Barcelona Bike Shop

In March we took a family trip to Spain for spring break.  The primary reason for this trip was to attend football (soccer) matches in Madrid and Barcelona.  As a family, we researched this trip A LOT and found A LOT of very cool things to do in the cities we visited (Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona).  One of those cool things was a destination bike shop in Barcelona.

We set aside one afternoon to head out to the shop.  Not having rented a car, we studied the train routes and schedules and determined it was about 30 mins outside of Barcelona in El Prat del Llobergat.  

After missing our first train by about 2 minutes, we had to wait another 30 minutes for the next train.  This was the first of our missed connections and confusion for this journey.  Once we arrived at the train station closest to the shop, we still had about a 20 minute walk to the shop.  It is an industrial area so there were no taxis to be found.  The whole time we were travelling to the shop, I was secretly worried tha…

In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
