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.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
