So while it may not really feel like it, triathlon season is right around the corner! I've been hitting it hard recently, and I think my work over the winter might just be paying off. Yay! I'm feeling more confident than ever in the pool, even fitting in two before-school pool sessions last week. When that alarm goes off at 4:30, it's not pretty, but I never regret it once it's over. The pool is always pretty quiet at that time too, which is nice.
Alyssa for a bike/run brick. I love training with Alyssa because she pushes me to bike just a *little* further every time. Sunday was a little rough--I was tired, it was cold, and the wind was blowing. 5 minutes in I was wanting to be done. But the conversation was great, the weather improved, Alyssa didn't laugh when I almost crashed into a stoplight (still learning how to clip in and out...), and we ended up getting in 22 miles followed by a 1.5 mile run. My legs were definitely jelly when we started the run, but they loosened up pretty quickly. Yay!
I'm also excited that this year I will be a race ambassador for the Esprit de She Naperville Triathlon! This is one of my favorite races, and I'm pumped to be a part of their team.
Esprit de She is truly a phenomenal race. They are well-organized, have the best swag, and just create the most positive, supportive race atmosphere. My experience with them last year was awesome, and I couldn't be more excited to be back again racing this year. If you are interested in a discount code to register for one of their events, just shoot me an email at juiceboxesandcrayolasATgmailDOTcom and I'll send it over!
