Pre-race routine:

Coffee 1.5 hours before,

1 GU gel with caffeine 20 min before
[Coach's comment about hydration: For a Sprint pre-loading up to an hour before the start with a fluid like e-load will help make sure that no water, electrolyte or carbohydrate deficits exist prior to starting. Starting your activity dehydrated, electrolyte depleted or relatively hypoglycemic with reduced glycogen stores will limit performance for sure! Then keep sipping on the bike to keep your levels topped up. This should carry you through the 5k run. Ideally you don't want to have to drink on a high intensity 5k run. � Hydrating while running can cause stomach upset, with sloshing liquids in the stomach, intestinal discomfort, side stitches/cramps or even nausea, especially with more concentrated sports drinks.]

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?
