Hey!

I am the running leg of our relay team on the long course this Sunday.  Will any of you fine people be out there racing?  I've never done an Xterra but have done a ton of trail running, so I figure I will be ok.

I was curious how that went.  Glad you had fun.  Was the course tough?

Yes, it was a really technical trail run--many twists and turns, rocks, roots, felled trees, off camber...you name it.  Plus a lot of the trail had a ton of leaves over it, so you never knew what you were stepping onto. (That's how I tore both of my ankle ligaments in two other trail runs in the past, so I was ultra-cautious!) There were a few short, steep hills too.  I really liked it, though, as it was so pretty!  Had a great time.  The winning runner did the 10k in 37 minutes, he was a college cross-country runner.  I was in at 1:03.  Not quite as fast, haha.

Immediately I felt attracted by the challenge. I have done plenty of biking this summer and a new motivation, particularly toward the end of the summer, was what I needed.

My 1st triathlon, Xterra and the mess I made of myself. This wasn’t your regular triathlon, it was off-road.

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.
