Hi,

Just thought I would start the thread seeing as we are just 5 weeks out.

I am doing this with my two daughters (17 and 22).

We hope to have a fun time!

I'm not racing Iron Girl, but I raced this new course for the Celebrating Heroes triathlon. During the race, for that traffic-tricky part on MD 40 they had us staying all the way to the left, riding against traffic in a coned-off lane. It felt a little freaky but worked out well. Stay safe and careful during practice rides but know that race-day logistics will be in place to make this easy.

How did you make the left turn from Centennial Lane? Were you able to stay in the left lane, and did you have to wait for the light? That is the turn that I am most concerned about.

Get into the left lane and make the left. Traffic control will hold up oncoming cars if necessary. That was easy

I am glad they changed the course. I did this two years ago with my girls. They were not prepared (pretty much no training). The bike course did them both in. So I was happy to see the change.This year they are both training though! They are getting out the door for a run or bike pretty regularly and hopping in the pool when they can.

Have a goal when you get into the water. If your purpose is distance, then set your pace for endurance. If your objective is speed, then incorporate drills.

My first reaction to wearing a skirt while running was, “are you crazy?” I am no girly girl. I then tried one of the newest skirts from Nicole DeBoom’s TRIKS line and I can tell you I’m hooked.

This is not an easy task, especially for the “9-to-5er” with family. But you can do it – all without sacrificing your marriage, job or family.
